Argentina reached the final of the Copa America in emphatic style thrashing Paraguay 6-1 in the semis in Concepcion, Chile.

Angel Di Maria scored twice while Marcos Rojo, Javier Pastore Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain were also on target as the Lionel Messi-inspired Albiceleste progressed to their third final in four competitions.

In the showpiece match on Saturday in Santiago, Argentina will meet hosts Chile who are making their first appearance in the final in 28 years and searching their first title.

Argentina meanwhile are hunting a record-equaling 15th crown but first since their 1993 success in Ecuador.
