[h=2][FONT=&quot]Roja raging against the dying of the light[/FONT][/h][FONT=&quot]We suggested, in our antepost tournament preview, that Chile might be the big name most likely for a big fall. Their stars were ageing, there was a dearth of top-rate talent coming through, and coach Reinaldo Rueda was already fending off critics after some wobbly results and performances in friendlies over the last year. It did not look like a recipe for success.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]This side has a habit of proving people wrong, however, and La Roja are now on the brink of reaching a third successive Copa América final. That in itself would be a colossal achievement given the size of the country and their relatively modest list of achievements before this decade, but now they are in the semi-finals - and their opponents aren't quite as tough as they may have expected - it would now be regarded as a disappointment were they not fighting it out for another Copa title next Sunday.

[FONT=&quot]Rueda's few tweaks have paid off well this summer: Erick Pulgar has lent height and energy lớn the midfield, and Guillermo Maripán has done well at the back. But it's still essentially the same side that made history in 2015 and 2016, with much riding on Arturo Vidal, Alexis Sánchez, Charles Aránguiz, Mauricio Isla and Gary Medel. They might not quite have the stamina lớn press for 90 minutes as they once did, but you cannot argue with their big-tournament nous.[/FONT]

[h=2][FONT=&quot]Can Peru grind their way to the final?[/FONT][/h][FONT=&quot]If Paraguay were the team luckiest lớn be in the quarter-finals (after two draws and a defeat in the group stage), it's now fair lớn say that Peru have taken on the mantle in the final four. La Blanquirroja have won just one game en route lớn this stage, and that came against Bolivia, one of the worst teams in the tournament. That was also the only game they scored in: two goalless draws and a 5-0 capitulation to Brazil complete their portfolio.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Harsh? Perhaps. There is no obligation to play flowing football, and it was surely prudent lớn be cautious against Uruguay in the quarter-final. That went down as a sizeable upset, too, which isn't to be sniffed at. But it's hard not lớn feel Ricardo Gareca's side have abandoned the approach that made them so thrilling to watch in the lead-up to the 2018 World Cup - and, indeed, in Russia.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]It would help if their big-ticket attackers started to click. Christian Cueva is about as reliable as a speedboat made out of cake, and has yet lớn produce much, while Paolo Guerrero is starting to look his age. With Jefferson Farfán already at home due lớn injury, someone else might need to step up if they are lớn make their the Copa final for the third time in their history.[/FONT]
