Chile will play Argentina in Sunday's Copa America final after beating Colombia 2-0 in a match delayed more than two hours by a torrential storm.

They were two up at the break but the second half was halted as an electrical storm saturated Soldier Field, Chicago.

Charles Aranguiz converted a rebound past Arsenal's David Ospina to put Chile ahead and Jose Pedro Fuenzalida struck four minutes later.

The final is a repeat of last year's, which hosts Chile won on penalties.

The Colombians will now play hosts the United States in the third-place play-off on Saturday.

Argentina beat the United States 4-0 on Tuesday night, with the rout including a spectacular free-kick goal from Lionel Messi that saw him become the country's leading scorer.
