Sports Live: Argentina set up a tantalising Copa America semi-final against hosts Brazil after easing past Venezuela 2-0, reports BBC.  Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero was involved in both goals as Argentina aim for their third straight final.

Aguero's low drive was flicked in by Lautaro Martinez and goalkeeper Wuilker Farinez spilled the striker's shot for Giovani Lo Celso to tap home. Venezuela created very little and Ronald Hernandez saw his shot from close range kept out by Franco Armani.

Lionel Scaloni's side will play Brazil in Mineirao at 01:30 BST on Wednesday after the tournament hosts edged past Paraguay on penalties following a 0-0 draw. Though he was largely quiet against Venezuela, captain Lionel Messi will take heart from knowing Argentina are one win away from another Copa America final.

Inter Milan striker Martinez should have had two goals in the game, but struck the outside of the post in a one-on-one with the goalkeeper, while substitute Angel di Maria curled straight at Farinez late on.
