Copa America Centenario 2016: second title for Chile, again on penalties to Argentina
Who would tell Chileans who a year ago were to hold the title of Copa America Centenario, yet already go for two. The Red extends his glorious time and without Sampaoli on the bench but with another Argentine in place, Juan Antonio Pizzi, and just as they did in the first time, to Argentina on penalties.
At MetLife Stadium they were no goals in the final of the Copa America Centenario and that the party needed an extension and first after a penalty shoot. Yes that was what was battle, a war in which, with the invaluable help of Brazilian referee Lopes, he resulted in the expulsion of Marcelo Diaz for Chilean side and Marcos Rojo from Argentina side. And thats just in the first half. In the second part the hardness not lower, but Lopes was restrained.
A first half in which Higuain had the clearest opportunity, but forgave the gift he received. In defense of Pipita must say that none other of his colleagues was right in front of goal, and also was the same on the side of Chile. The shooting that took place during the meeting, or they are going away from the frame or were available to the porters.
Goalkeepers would be those that decant the balance in a penalty shootout that began well for Argentina, because Sergio Romero atajaba the first shot Arturo Vidal. However, Leo Messi could not quite with yours to open the account. The ’10’ led his team throughout the Copa America Centenario, but failed at the time and could have been key.
Key was the eighth launch. Faultlessly on either side from those already mentioned, Claudio Bravo took that shot him to LUCSA Biglia and after the second failure of Argentina in the final was put Chile tray. A shot, a goal, a title. The responsibility took an alternate, the cat Silva, easily beating Bravo and unleashed the madness between wearing the Red.
Meanwhile, Messi stayed just sitting on the bench and probably visualizing the three consecutive final loss leading the Albiceleste in the last three years. While winless drought to Argentina elongates a little more, Chile does what he had never done before, reign in America and also for the second time.
