Chile FC win Copa America for the first time ever and that too in 2015. The club had played in Copa Americas in the past, but never won. Chile played against Argentina in the Copa America final and the match ended draw, leading it to penalties. Chile football team scored 4 goals in the penalties, while Argentina scored only one goal missing the remaining. First team to start the penalty were Chile. Lionel Messi was the only Argentinian player to score in the penalties, kicking the ball low and hard. He must have been so upset when his team mates missed the penalties, when the team was so close to winning the 2015 Copa America.
Copa America 2015 took place in the narrow country Chile, in between 11th June – 4th July 2015. The competition was organized by the The South American Football Confederation aka CONMEBOL, the first governing body of South America and took place in Chile between the dates of 11 June to 4 July 2015. Chile turned out to be the champions in the 44th edition of the Copa America in the penalties by beating one of the best teams ever, Argentina who have won the Copa America titles in the past for 14 times. The last time Argentina were named The champions was in 1993. However this year, in 2015 they turned out to be the runners ups. I may have been supporting Argentina but after seeing Chile’s performance, and realising that they have never won a title, I was like may the best team win.
The penalties was started by Chile. The first one to start was Matias Fernandez who scored, Lionel scored too when it was Argentina’s turn making the score 1 – 1. Arturo Vidal scored too making the score 2 – 1 while Higuian kicked the ball over the bar missing it. Charles Aranguiz scored an amazing goal, wow what a goal! Making the score 3 – 1, now it was Banega’s turn to kick the ball, but sadly he missed the penalty when goalkeeper Bravo saved it. Chilean player Alexis Sanchez made the whole team proud by scoring the last goal before running off to celebrate. The game was over, and the Chilean players were announced the winners. Messi was stunned of course.
