Argentina vs Chile should be a cracker of a match ReutersTwo-time World Cup champion Argentina will take the field on July 6 against Chile for the third-place match of the Copa America 2019, in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Argentina went down to Brazil 2-0 in their semi-final clash whereas Chile was handed a shocking 3-0 defeat by Peru.Lionel Messi-led Argentina lost 2-0 to Brazil in the semi-final which was a much-awaited clash. The La Albiceleste were the better team on that night but luck was not on their side. They went into attack a lot of times but could not hit the back of the net, instead, they hit the crossbar twice. Messi’s Copa dream took another hit and he has to wait for the 2023 Copa America to again try and win. Argentina had performed poorly throughout the tournament but they became much more organised in the semi-final and performed well. They will seek redemption against Chile as the latter beat them in the finals of the last two editions of the tournament.On the other hand, Chile were handed a shocking defeat by Peru. The La Roja have been performing pretty well at the starting of the tournament but their performance started to deteriorate as the tournament progressed. But they did not expect a loss against Peru and they had the better possession. They even missed a penalty in the dying minutes of the match. They will look forward to again beat Argentina and settle for the third spot.The Argentina-Chile match will start at 4 PM on July 6, according to local time and 12.30 AM, July 7, according to IST.Global TV listings and Live streamTelemundo: USAPremier Sports 1: UKStream: Telemundo Deportes En Vivo, ESPN+, Premier PlayerHow to watch in IndiaThere has been a huge disappointment for Indian football fans as the tournament will not be telecast in the country.

Five more Turkish soldiers were killed Thursday in fighting for the Islamic State (IS) held town of Al-Bab in northern Syria, bringing to 10 the number of troops who lost their lives over two days, a report said.Ten soldiers were also wounded in the fighting between IS jihadists and the Turkish army, which is backing a campaign by Syrian rebels to take the town, the Dogan news agency said.Another five soldiers had already been killed in fighting on Wednesday.Turkey on August 24 began an unprecedented campaign inside Syria against IS and Kurdish militia which initially made rapid progress but has become mired in a deadly fight for Al-Bab since December.According to Dogan, 66 Turkish soldiers have now been killed in the Syria operation since it began in August, mostly in attacks by IS.Turkey had on Wednesday claimed significant progress in the battle to capture Al-Bab and signalled it was looking to push to the jihadist stronghold of Raqa in the next stage of the operation.Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Al-Bab was now “surrounded on all sides” and the town’s outer neighbourhoods were “under control”.Al-Bab has been besieged since Monday, when government forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad advancing from the south cut off a road leading into the town.Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu suggested that once Al-Bab was captured Turkey and its allies could send special forces to take Raqa, the de-facto capital for IS to the southwest.
