(CNN)The nightmare of 2011 is over for Carlos Tevez, who closed the loop on one of his most painful football memories by putting Argentina into the Copa America semifinals after a dramatic penalty shootout against Colombia.
Copa America 2015: Carlos Tevez puts Argentina in semis after sealing Boca Juniors return
The striker came off the bench in the second half and netted the decisive 14th spot-kick, sealing a 5-4 win after the match finished 0-0 in Chile on Friday.
It was announced during the game that Tevez will return to Argentina to play for his hometown club Boca Juniors, having negotiated his release from European Champions League finalist Juventus.
The 31-year-old has long felt homesick since moving to Europe in 2006 -- four years after that he put in a transfer request while playing for English club Manchester City, because he was missing his Argentina-based family.
