Players like Messi and Tevez failed to breach a weak Colombian defense throughout the game and the team paid the price for it. Argentina's two big-name forwards were outplayed by Colombia strikers Radamel Falcao and Dayro Moreno, who had more chances and deserved a winning result.
Argentina had a number of attacks on the Colombian goalpost but without much luck. The match ended in a tie after entire 90-minutes. If Argentina has to stand any chance of making the second round of the Copa America they would have to win their final Group C game against Costa Rica with a decent goal difference.
