Chile Win Copa América In PKs After Messi Chokes

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.


The match went to penalties after a 0-0 regulation and extra time in a match that was marred by bizarre and out-of-control behavior by the referee. Francisco Silva delivered the winning kick for the Chileans, who defended last year’s Copa América title.
