Colombia's changes worked quite effectively defensively in the 2nd half, but there wasn't much attacking threat— Nick Dorrington (@chewingthecoca) June 8, 2013
Anger from the Argentines over the second disallowed goal, but there are smiles between the two teams at the final whistle. A draw helps both sides inch towards expected World Cup qualification.
FULL TIME: Argentina 0-0 Colombia - Two red cards, three disallowed goals and a host of chances in the first scoreless draw of the qualifying campaign.
90+3' Lavezzi loops a cross into the box towards Messi, but claimed by Ospina.
90+2' Long hoof from Mascherano looks for Rojo but runs out of play. Argentina are running out of ideas here.
90' Three added minutes to come...
90' YELLOW CARD Zuniga booked for handling the ball after he felt a free-kick had been given in his direction. May also have been for a display of dissent to the linesman.
88' Argentina defend the free kick from Cuadrado well, while Armero's return is also headed clear. Excellent defending.
87' Big opportunity for Colombia now. Free kick to the right of the area.
85' Di Maria flashes an effort past the post from long range. The Real Madrid man has been quiet since the arrival of Messi.
83' Instantly, Lavezzi almost sets up Biglia but Perea sweeps up.
82' SUBSTITUTION Ezequiel Lavezzi replaces Sergio Aguero for Argentina.
81' YELLOW CARD Aldo Ramirez booked for an arm in the face of Mascherano. Tempers continue to rise on both sides.
79' Argentina prodding and probing now as Colombia look to be sitting back and hoping for the draw.
76' YELLOW CARD Zabaleta booked for yet another show of dissent. Well deserved.
75' All getting heated now as Falcao catches Fernandez late. Nothing doing says the referee.
Aguero goal ruled out. Not sure why.— Daniel Colasimone (@ArgentinaFW) June 7, 2013
72' OFFSIDE Huge protests from Zabaleta and manager Sabella as Aguero sees a second effort ruled out in what appears a massive error.
71' YELLOW CARD Ezequiel Garay booked for grappling with Cuadrado.
70' Messi gets into the penalty area from the right and is immediately flattened by a good challenge. He gets up, though, and continues his run but Perea mops up.
68' Angel di Maria goes on a nice run down the left flank, beating his man but chooses to flop under a second challenge. The referee tells him to get up.
67' Play gets back underway and it appears Ospina is okay. The recently introduced Mejia is trailing Messi around the pitch.
