Argentina beats Costa Rica, advances to quarters

Sergio Aguero scored twice as Argentina defeated Costa Rica 3-0 on Monday to advance to the Copa America quarterfinals after two disappointing matches to open the continental championship.
Aguero scored in first-half stoppage time, and again in the 52nd off a pass from Barcelona star Lionel Messi, who showed his best form for the first time in the tournament.
Aguero scored Argentina's only other goal in the first two matches, making him the tournament scoring leader with three.
Angel Di Maria scored Argentina's final goal in the 64th against the Ticos, who are playing as guests in the 12-team tournament and fielding what amounts to a second-string team.
