Argentina 3-0 Bolivia
Argentina booked a quarterfinal clash against Venezuela following a comfortable 3-0 win over Bolivia in the Copa America Centenario on Tuesday.
First-half goals from Erik Lamela, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Victor Cuesta sealed the win, confirming top spot in Group D with nine points.
Lamela and Lavezzi scored within two minutes of each other, before Cuesta scored his first international goal in his first start just past the half-hour mark.
Lionel Messi was introduced at halftime but the goals dried up for Argentina in the second period, running out the three-goal win at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.
Argentina will now face Venezuela in the last eight of the special-edition centenary tournament, while Chile meets Mexico.
With their spot in the quarterfinals already confirmed, Gerardo Martino elected to make six changes from the lineup that defeated Panama 5-0, but that did not mean it was a weakened team.
Chile 4-2 Panama
Alexis Sanchez and Eduardo Vargas scored two goals each as Chile advanced to the quarter-finals of the Copa America Centenario on Tuesday with a 4-2 victory over Panama.
The defending champions responded to the shock of falling behind to a Miguel Camargo goal after only five minutes, with two goals by Vargas before Arsenal star Sanchez grabbed a third. Sanchez added his second in the 89th minute to complete the rout.
Chile will be disappointed advance to the quarter-finals still searching for their best form after twice conceding against modest opponents who were thumped 5-0 by Argentina in their previous outing.
