America on way to semis

America lost to Santos 1-0 on Thursday but still advanced to the semifinals of Copa Libertadores. Guillermo Ochoa and America's defense withstood a 90-minute barrage from Santos, who got a goal from ex-America star Kleber in the second half.

America will play Liga Deportivo Universitario of Quito in the semis.

Here are the highlights:

I've been impressed with Ochoa ever since I saw him in Mexico's first game against Brazil in last year's Copa America. Has there been any interest in him from European clubs?

There were rumors of Manchester United pursuing Ochoa but nothing ever came of them. Ochoa could easily play in Europe, but with America having lost Blanco a year ago, I don't think they could or should get rid of their big superstar right now.
