USA reached this stage of the tournament after a well-fought 2-1 win over Ecuador at the quarter-finals last Thursday: third consecutive victory for the home team after those against Costa Rica (4-0) and Paraguay (1-0) in the group stage.
However, first match against Colombia (0-2) was a sign that the hosts will hardly be able to resist successfully to the leading South American teams, especially in a moment when they will be without three important players in Alejandro Bedoya (midf.), Jermaine Jones (midf. / 1 goal) and Bobby Wood (forw. / 1 goal).
Javier Pastore (midf.) and Nicolas Gaitan (forw.) are out for Argentina, but I doubt that the absence of these two players will be so big problem for Gerardo Martino, considering the potential of this team.
Argentina excels USA in terms of individual qualities of the players and experience, the South Americans are highly motivated to win their first title of major tournament since 1993 and I think that they are capable to win this match with more than one goal difference.
