In the midst of the euphoria over the start of the Euros, it’s easy to forget that we also have a few players in the States featuring in the Copa America.
Alexis started for Chile in the early hours of Saturday morning as they needed a late penalty to beat Bolivia 2-1.
Arturo Vidal was voted Man of the Match as he slotted home from the spot in stoppage time (which stretched to an astonishing 12 minutes (even though ‘only’ eight were signalled due to injuries and a protest from Bolivia)).
Alexis had come close a number of times, seeing an effort cleared off the line and a free-kick go close but it seemed as if the game, which Chile dominated with 18 shots to 3, would finish in a draw.
Vidal thought otherwise.
