Vidal stars in Chile triumph
FC Bayern München midfielder Arturo Vidal celebrates after playing a starring role in Chile's 2-1 victory over Bolivia at the Copa America.
Vidal (back, 4th l.) and Bayer 04 Leverkusen's Charles Aranguiz (front, r.) both started for Chile in a must-win game after they lost their opening Group D encounter against Argentina.
The South American nation had plenty of support in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
After a goalless first 45 minutes, Vidal (2nd l.) put Chile 1-0 up within seconds of the restart, coolly picking out the bottom corner from ten yards to finish off Chile's first attack of the half.
Yet Bolivia equalised against the run of play, leaving Chile to search frantically for a late winner that would keep them on course for a place in the quarter-finals.
As ever, the Bayern man's battling qualities were to the fore, before he showed his mettle deep into added time at the end of the game...
With ten minutes of injury time played, Vidal tucked away this penalty to give La Roja all three points.
The 29-year-old showed his relief in his exuberant celebration, jumping for joy with team-mate Eduardo Vargas (l.) of TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.
