Copa América: Mass brawl ends Paraguay's semi-final win over Venezuela

Paraguay booked their place in the Copa America final for the first time in 32 years after a penalty shoot-out win over Venezuela. Justo Villar's save to deny Franklin Lucena proved the key moment in the shoot-out after a match Venezuela controlled for the most part ended goalless after extra time. Venezuela struck the woodwork three times while Paraguay had Jonathan Santana sent off in extra-time, but still Gerardo Martino's side held on to ensure their place in Sunday's Buenos Aires showpiece against Uruguay.

Hard to call that a real soccer brawl if there aren't any flying kicks.
