BACK IN PLAY Chile leads Colombia before weather delay
CHICAGO, Ill. -- Chile held a 2-0 advantage over Colombia after one half before the Copa America Centenario semifinal match was suspended because of weather at Soldier Field Wednesday night.
The game, which started just after 8 p.m., resumed at 11:30 p.m.
Charles Aranguiz gave Chile the lead, scoring from point-blank range in the seventh minute, the sequence starting as Jose Fuenzalida broke down the right and crossed to the back post. The ball was headed back by Carlos Sanchez, dropping to Aranguiz.
Fuenzalida then converted into an open net after an Alexis Sanchez shot went past a diving David Ospina, deflecting off the inside of the left post and skimming across the goalline in the 11th minute. Claudio Bravo started the sequence with a long clearance, Sanchez controlling and firing away.
