Hosts Chile beat Argentina 4-1 in penalties to win their maiden Copa America title. The game was drawn at 0-0 at the end of extra time. However, in the penalties, Chile skipper Claudio Bravo had the last laugh as he pipped his counterpart Sergio Romero to make two saves out of three. Romero couldn’t make a single save as Chile managed to score in all their four penalty shootout chances. Alexis Sanchez lobbed the last won slowly as the entire stadium erupted in celebration.
Sanchez took off his t-shirt and ran towards the fans. The golden generation of Chile outdid title favourites Argentina, who couldn’t score a single goal despite a star-studded forward line. In the penalties, Lionel Messi did score, but Gonzalo Higuain hit the ball too hard and above the goal-post, into the stands.
