VIDEO: Ospina penalty heroics send Colombia through

Jose Pekerman's charges advanced to the semi-finals of the Copa America Centenario on Friday, with the Arsenal goalkeeper playing a starring role

Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina was the hero for his country as Colombia defeated Peru in a penalty shoot-out in the Copa America Centenario quarter-finals.

Jose Pekerman's men were held to a 0-0 draw after 120 minutes against the Peruvians, with a place in the last four decided by spot-kicks.

Peru and Colombia both scored their first two efforts from 12 yards, with Daryo Moreno then netting to put the latter 3-2 ahead.

Ospina then saved Miguel Trauco's effort to give Colombia the advantage, and when Sebastian Perez converted and Christian Cueva shot wide, Pekerman's charges were through to the semi-finals.
