Alexis Sanchez had to leave the Copa America final before the penalty shootout on account of Gabriel Mercado caught him with a nasty tackle that left him unable to play past the 104th minute. Chile won anyway, thanks to Messi’s chokejob, but Alexis’ ankle has ballooned up and it looks like the podiatric equivalent of…
The world’s greatest soccer player once again failed to lead his team to a major international trophy as Argentina fell to Chile in penalties 4-2, thanks in part to Messi failing to deliver his PK attempt on target.
Chile vs. Colombia was exciting during the first half, nonexistent for the next two hours, then soggy and boring for the second half. Thankfully, stoppage time featured an amazing moment in Idiot On The Field history, as this enterprising dumbass managed to escape a sizable horde of the security team, run the length…
Chile obliterated Mexico in last night’s Copa América quarterfinal, running up a seven-spot and keeping El Tri scoreless. As is our custom, here are all those goals as called by wrestling legend Jim “J.R.” Ross.
Panama have a chance to knock Chile out of the Copa America and join their CONCACAF friends (USA and Mexico) in the quarterfinals if they beat Chile this evening. Thanks to a terrible pass by a center back and some fumbling goalkeeping work, they got an early lead against the Chileans.
One day after playing the Chilean national anthem instead of Uruguay’s, the Copa América screwed things up again by interrupting Chile’s anthem before the team’s match against Argentina in Santa Clara.
This has just about everything you get from horrible soccer fandom: A bunch of idiots on the field, indiscriminate wielding of metal poles, flares, chairs being used as weapons, riot police, and a match ruined because the guys in the stadium would rather demonstrate their superiority mano a mano rather than…
Seriously, ref? This is what’s hot now? Sure, the ball did hit this Chilean ref in the thigh, and the player did kick it at him in frustration. But acting like he’s just been stabbed in the leg in response? Downright shameful.
No idea what this guy in a random Colombian game was trying to do, and yet I think I’m impressed all the same.
Two packed buses set out from Cali, Colombia this weekend heading towards Santiago, Chile to deliver dozens of soccer fans to the site of the two countries’ World Cup qualifying match. Unbeknownst to the fans, they were accompanied by over 1,000 lbs. of cocaine, discretely hidden underneath the seats and floor.
Newsflash, buddy: you aren’t people. And soccer’s for people, not dogs.
Chile launched Estadio Nacional into ecstasy when Edu Vargas landed an unreal screamer to put the host side up 2-1 on Peru just minutes after Gary Medel had equalized for the Peruvians in the Copa America semifinal. As you might expect, it sent beIN announcer Ray Hudson into orgasmic screams.
What part of “you can’t use your hands” don’t you get, Gonzalo Jara? And Cavani was the one who got sent off? There’s no justice in this world.
Yesterday, we lamented the preliminary two-match suspension handed down to Neymar because of his actions at the end of the Brazil-Colombia game. We now know for (almost) certain that we have seen the last of Brazil’s stud for the Copa América, as his suspension has been increased to four games.
Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal is currently in his native Chile with the national team competing in the Copa América. On his way back from a casino with his wife on his off-day, Vidal was involved in a two-car accident and arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.
It's still a little odd seeing guys like Michael Bradley, Clint Dempsey, Jermaine Jones—hell, even Jozy Altidore—in their USMNT jerseys and remembering that these are not the players they once were. It's tough to wean yourself away from, say, watching Altidore temporarily putting the U.S. up 2-1 on Chile last night…
New Arsenal star Alexis Sánchez has come into the Premier League and torn shit up. Naturally, his native Chile has been very interested in their local hero's exploits. And while there hasn't been too much to worry about in terms of his playing performance, the country's press has kept a close eye on his performance in…
