Angel Di Maria scored twice and Lionel Messi was in inspired form as Argentina made it into the Copa America final with a 6-1 hammering of Paraguay.

The Albiceleste, runners-up in last summer's World Cup, will try to win their first continental title for 22 years after a one-sided game which saw Di Maria's Manchester United team-mate Marcos Rojo and Manchester City's Sergio Aguero also on target along with Javier Pastore and Gonzalo Higuain.

Lucas Barrios had cut the half-time deficit to just 2-1 but it is Argentina who will meet hosts Chile on Saturday at the Estadio Nacional in Santiago.
