Team news

Richarlison is likely to be back for the semi-final after sitting out the win over Paraguay with mumps.

But should he miss out again, it may well mean another appearance for the man who shares the name of the team he plays for.

Everton proved to be a revelation in the 5-0 win over Peru, and could get another go in this semi-final.

Felipe Luis is a doubt for Brazil, having been taken off at half time against Paraguay, while Fernandinho hasn’t played since the second group game.

Argentina have no injury concerns and are likely to continue with Lionel Messi playing behind a front two of Lautaro Martinez and Sergio Aguero.

Boss Lionel Scaloni will also need to decide whether to bring in Spurs target Giovani Lo Celso after his goal from the bench against Venezuela or stick with the more defensively minded Marcos Acuna.
