Goals either side of half time from defender Raphael Varane and midfielder Antoine Griezmann eased the 1998 champions in the Tuesday’s semifinal in St. Petersburg.

Edinson Cavani inspired Uruguay to a 2-1 win over Portugal in their round of 16 World Cup tie on Saturday with two fantastic strikes. Cavani set the South Americans on their way when he headed home early, only for Pepe to equalize, also with a header shortly after half time. Cavani then scored the winner with just under half hour to play to seal the win and get his team into the quarter finals.

The Ex- Queens Park Rangers man, Mauricio Isla, fired Chile into the lead with a wonder strike 10 minutes from time which turned out to be the game winner as he set up a clash with either Bolivia or Peru in the last four of the Copa America.

Isla's 80th minute strike was enough to see off nine-man Uruguay at the Estadio Nacional. The win pushed them through to the semi-finals of the Copa America.

The full-back drove his shot low into the corner to settle an ill-tempered encounter which saw both Edinson Cavani and Jorge Fucile dismissed in the second half.

Colombia's 22 year old Monaco playmaker James Rodriguez produced another master class at the World Cup where he scored twice to give Colombia a big 2-0 victory over Copa America Champions Uruguay. The 5ft 11in left footed genius scored perhaps the best goal of the tournament in the first half then finished off an excellent team move to book a date for Los Cafeteros with Brazil in the quarter-finals.

Another epic battle looms in game two of "South American Saturday" as the knock -out round begins in the FIFA World Cup. The impressive Colombians will take on a Uruguay team that is reeling from the suspension of star striker Luis Suarez. Los Cafeteros has been the best South American team on show thus far despite the absence of star striker Radamel Falcao and they will hope to improve on their performances in order to go as far a possible.
