Claudio Bravo is a penalty specialist. The guy has won two major tournaments off his own gloves and is now looking to win a third. The 34 year old goalkeeper saved three penalties to defeat Portugal and send Chile to the Confederations Cup Final.
Portugal’s penalty takers were no pushovers either. Bravo denied Ricardo Quaresma, João Moutinho and Nani from the spot!
Despite the game being scoreless after 120 minutes, it was nothing short of excitement. Both sides produced attacking flair, equaled by rock solid defending at the back.
It’s funny to think that these two (continent) Champions had not won a major tournament before 2015. Both nations have stamped their dominance on the world stage, with Chile winning two Copa América’s and Portugal winning the European Championship last year.
Chile will either play Germany or Mexico in the Confederations Cup Final.
