Vidal scores match-winner deep into injury time

Postby FCBayernNews » Sat Jun 11, 2016 10:20 am

What a thriller! Two-goal Arturo Vidal handed Chile a crucial Copa America victory. He scored the yearned-for match-winner against Bolivia 10 minutes into injury time.

Chile were under pressure after a 2-1 defeat to Argentina in their first match. The first period in Foxborough near Boston ended goalless even though the Chileans clearly dominated the match. Only 34 seconds into the second half Vidal opened the scoring, driving home from 10 yards after a cross from the left. Bolivia levelled it up after Jhasmani Campos' sensational free-kick on the hour.

Subsequently Chile squandered several gilt-edged chances. It was only after a controversial penalty, awarded no fewer than eight minutes into injury time, that Juan Antonio Pizzi's troops wrapped things up. Vidal netted from the spot to hand his side a last-gasp triumph. The Chileans would seal a berth in the last eight with a victory over underdogs Panama on Wednesday at 2 am CET.
