    Second half underway after 2+hour weather delay. Will be interesting to see how the sides respond. Hopefully pitch is in decent condition. Would hate to see it affect the match in any way.

    Colombia should have been awarded a PK. Official simply swallowed his whistle. That could/should have been a game-changer.

    You can see water splashing with every step the players take. Looks like the scene from the movie musical, "Singing in the Rain."

    Sanchez of Colombia earns his second yellow of the match. Wow. Refs can't legitimately call that foul a yellow if they don't call the foul on Chile and award Col a PK earlier in the half. Colombia players gathered around the official protesting, but when has that tactic ever bear fruit?

    Colombia's tough task is somewhere close to impossible now, playing with 10 men.

    A brave Colombia side still threatening . . . still working hard. Contrast that with Mexico's disappearing act in the quarter finals.

    Great chance on a header from CHI forces COL keeper to make a good save.

    Colombia creating chances and Chile sitting back. I think it's just a matter of time before COL nets one. But unfortunately in addition to playing a man down while trying to pull back two goals, the clock is becoming as great an adversary as Chile. Less than 20 minutes left in regulation to do the impossible.

    CHI losing a little discipline and composure. Earn a couple of yellow cards. Colombia with a FK about 30 meters out. James takes it. No goal but they earn a corner.

    Ugly challenge by a COL player in the final two minutes of regulation earns a yellow and stokes tempers. Four minutes of time added. Both teams look spent. I imagine the two hour delay and running on a messy pitch makes for a tough match.

    Now a jackass fan runs on to the pitch . . .

    Let's just blow the whistle and get both sides off without injury and the fans home safely.

    James with a FK 30 meters out . . . hits the wall and whistle blows. FT.

    Finals ARG vs CHI (rematch of 2015 Copa finals)

    Third-place match USA vs. COL (rematch of Group A opening match)

    Good night. What a day of football.
