Brazil will play in the final of the 2019 Copa America, after they saw off Argentina 2-0 in their semi-final clash on Tuesday.

Gabriel Jesus opened scoring in the 19th minute of the game, played at the Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte.

Jesus then turned provider, as Roberto Firmino added the second with 19 minutes left on the clock.

The result means the hosts will now go on to seek their 10th South American title, while Lionel Messi remains without trophies for his national team.

Brazil’s opponent will be determined on Wednesday, when defending champions Chile take on Peru at the Arena do Grêmio in Porto Alegre.
