Both Yaser Asprilla and Ismael Kone have had their places at the upcoming Copa America confirmed.

However, Francisco Sierralta has missed out after failing to make the Chile squad.

Asprilla was a half-time substitute for Colombia as they beat Bolivia 3-0 in a friendly played in Connecticut on Saturday.

The Colombians go into the Copa America on the back on a run of eight consecutive wins, which has seen them beat the likes of Brazil and Spain.

After Saturday’s victory, head coach Nestor Lorenzo trimmed his squad down to the required 26 players ahead of their opening Copa America Group D game against Paraguay in Houston on June 24.

Colombia then play Costa Rica on June 28 (in Arizona), before facing Brazil in their final group game on July 2 (in California).

Kone has made it into head coach Jesse Marsch’s 26-man party for the tournament in the United States, which begins on Thursday (June 20).

Canada’s first Group A game with Argentina is in Atlanta on the opening day, before they face Peru on June 25 (in Kansas) and Chile on June 29 (in Orlando).

But Sierralta will not be heading to the USA after failing to make it into the squad selected by Diego Gareca, who initially named a 55-man provisional group and then trimmed it back after a 3-0 friendly win over Paraguay at the back end of last week.

Giorgi Chakvetadze could make his first appearance at a major finals tomorrow (Tuesday) along with the rest of his Georgian teammates.

Their first Group F game of Euro 2024 is against Turkey, and then they face Czech Republic (June 22) and Portugal (June 26).

It was a nightmare opening to the tournament for defender Ryan Porteous, as he was sent off and conceded a penalty in the process as Scotland lost 5-1 to hosts Germany on Friday night.

Porteous lunged in on Ilkay Gundogan on the stroke of half-time and was shown a red card after a VAR check.

The penalty was scored and Scotland trailed 3-0 at the break before having to play the second half with 10 men.

Former Scotland and Aberdeen defender Willie Miller said of the challenge from Porteous: “You're not going to win the ball with a tackle, you've got to try and block it. He should be trying to make himself big and be a block rather than a tackle.

"You're not going to win that ball with a tackle, try and block it. What he's actually done is combine the scissor challenge with an over the top into the ankle, it's horrendous and makes you feel a bit sick.

"Gundogan is lucky because his studs are in the ground and he's fortunate they bounce up when the tackle goes in, otherwise it's a snap. It's horrible. It's a horrible challenge."

Former Rangers and Scotland winger Niel McCann described it as “a leg breaker”.

"Ryan Porteous is too emotional, he was my biggest fear tonight when I saw him on the pitch,” he said.

"I understand he gets ahead of Hanley because he maybe didn't show enough in the Finland game. But he's so over-emotional, so rash. That's a leg-breaker every day of the week, a red card and a penalty.

"He's absolutely killed us, the game's gone at 3-0 but structurally Germany were pulling us apart. They're such a good team."
