Chile Send Ronaldo's Portugal Crashing Out Of Confed Cup

FIFA Confederations Cup 

Result: Portugal 0 (0) - (3) 0 Chile 

Date: 28 June 2017

Venue: Kazan Arena

Chile have advanced to the final of the FIFA Confederations Cup, after beating Portugal 3-0 on penalties on Wednesday evening.

Both nations had opportunities to score in the opening with Eduardo Vargas failed to beat Rui Patricio from six-yards, before Andre Silva had a similar miss 60 seconds later.

After a quiet spell in the half, La Roja nearly went ahead after 28 minutes when Isla's cross found Charles Aranguiz, who headed inches wide of the upright.

The Portuguese shaded the possession statistics in the first half, but were finding it tough to break down the Chilean defence.

Aranguiz's header proved to be the final bit of goal-mouth action in the half, as the sides went into the break goalless.

La Roja went close to breaking the deadlock in the 57th minute through Vargas, but the striker's bicycle-kick was superbly tipped away by Rui Patricio.

With Portugal struggling to get the goal, Fernando Santos introduced former Manchester United winger, Luis Nani for Andre Silva in the 75th minute.

Neither nation could find a winning goal in the final 15 minutes of the second stanza, which forced the clash into extra time.

Chile went close to securing the win in the 118th minute but Arturo Vidal rattled the upright from distance, before Martin Rodriguez struck the crossbar from the rebound.

Nevertheless, the clash went to a penalty shoot-out, where Chile held their nerve to triumph and secured a spot in Sunday's final thanks to three saves from Claudio Bravo.

@Faysal ay Khosi sometimes we need to use our brains before commenting, the surrogate was probably paid way before Confed cup started. Your comment is flawed.

Vidal looked more like a world best player yesterday unlike the other guy who was waiting to celebrate yet another penalty.

Rumors are spreading that cry7 is still sadly waiting for his penalty in a chilly weather at an empty stadium to impress the plastic seats (fake football fans)....shame.
