Chile Wins Copa America In PK’s
The Copa America tournament came to an exciting culmination last night as Chile beat Argentina 4-2 on penalty kicks after the teams went 120 minutes knotted at zero.
Both teams had their share of opportunities to score throughout the match. Both net-minders had fantastic games up until the penalty kicks that decided the game.
After a 0-0 draw in regulation and extra time, the match went to penalty kicks. Argentinian star Lionel Messi had an awful attempt at his penalty shot which sailed high over the crossbar. Both teams made their second and third penalty kicks, but then Argentina went cold and Chile closed it out with a pair 4-2.
Check out some of the highlights here:
After the match, Messi said to the media that he would not play for the Argentinian National team in the future. Could this just be him getting emotional after a tough match? We'll have to wait and see, but at just 29-years-old, it would be hard not to think he would never play for Argentina again.
