Argentina 3-0 Costa Rica

Two goals from Sergio Aguero helped Argentina ease past Costa Rica to secure their place in the Copa America quarter-finals on Monday night. The Atletico Madrid striker opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time and doubled his side’s advantage seven minutes after the interval before Real Madrid’s Angel Di Maria sealed victory in the 63rd minute.

The result sent the hosts through to the last eight along with Group A winners Colombia, leaving Costa Rica having to wait to see if they will progress as one of the two best third-placed teams. Sergio Batista’s side were in need of a win in order to keep their destiny in their own hands.
