Canada vs. Argentina at Copa América: What you need to know

Canada’s Copa América debut ended in bitter disappointment in the form of a 2-0 loss to Argentina on June 20 at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium before a raucous crowd of 70,564.  

The Canadians went toe-to-toe with the World Cup champions for 90 minutes, and caused them plenty of fits with their brave attacking play and outstanding goalkeeping from Maxime Crépeau. Since then, the Canadians have gone from strength to strength in the tournament with a win over Peru and a draw vs. Chile in the group stage, before holding their nerve in a penalty shootout victory over Venezuela in the quarter-finals. 

A semifinal rematch offers Canada a second chance at glory against the World Cup holders and defending Copa América champions.
