Claudio Bravo is the hero of the Night! Manchester City goal keeper saved all 3 penalties to give Chile the Confederations Cup final ticket as Chile defeated Portugal 3-0 after penalty shootout.

Chile beat Portugal 3-0 on penalties in the Confederations Cup semi-finals, with Claudio Bravo the hero.

Claudio Bravo was the hero for Chile as he saved all three Portugal penalties to send his side into the Confederations Cup final in a 3-0 shoot-out victory in Kazan.

Chile had been denied a clear penalty in the second period of extra-time and hit the woodwork twice in quick succession soon after, but they wrapped up the win in convincing fashion from the spot.

Arturo Vidal, Charles Aranguiz and Alexis Sanchez were all on target for the Copa America champions, while Ricardo Quaresma, Joao Moutinho and Nani were all denied by Manchester City stopper Bravo.

Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo did not step up to take a spot-kick.

The match itself finished goalless after a largely drab 90 minutes, before springing into life late in extra-time.

The video assistant referee was not called into action to review Jose Fonte’s clear foul on Francisco Silva in the box, before Vidal and Martin Rodriguez hit the frame of the goal.

On balance, it was a deserved victory for Chile, who also won both of their Copa America titles from the spot after the matches ended goalless.
