Argentina thumped Venezuela 4-1 on Sunday morning to reach the semi-finals of the Copa America Centenario.

Two goals from Gonzalo Higuain at the Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts helped Argentina into a comfortable 2-0 half-time lead.

Barcelona's Lionel Messi added a third on the hour mark, before Tottenham Hotspur ace Erik Lamela - who replaced Nicolas Gaitan on 68 minutes - added a fourth after Salomon Rondon pulled one back for Venezuela.

It was the 24-year-old's second goal this week after also netting in the 3-0 win over Bolivia, and Tottenham fans were as ever delighted for the talented winger.

Lamela's resurgence continues. He enjoyed an excellent season with Tottenham, continuing to win back some of the fans he had lost following a dismal first year in North London.

But working under compatriot Mauricio Pochettino seems to have brought the best out of the former Roma man, who joined Spurs for a reported £25 million in 2013.
