Confederations Cup final

Chile advanced to the Confederations Cup final with a 3-0 penalty shootout defeat of Portugal in Kazan, Russia on Wednesday.

Bravo, who missed the first two cup games in Russia because of injury, stopped penalties by Ricardo Quaresma, Joao Moutinho and Nani, while Arturo Vidal, Charles Aranguiz and Alexis Sanchez all scored for Chile sending them to their third straight international final after winning consecutive Copa America titles

The game began with a flurry of chances in the opening half. Andre Gomes fired a warning shot in just the second minute, forcing a save from Bravo after finding space in the centre of the box.

Ronaldo was off-form for Portugal and Chile gradually took control in front of 40,855 fans at Kazan Arena, most of them behind Chile.

Chile will play Germany or Mexico in Sunday’s final in St. Petersburg.
