Bravo dumps Portugal out of the Confederations Cup

Portugal and Chile played each other to a standstill.Both teams found themselves unable to score even after playing for 120 minutes.Chile did come – close hitting the woodwork a couple of times.They also had a legitimate penalty claim denied.The ref in this case should have used the VAR – but didn’t.Something wrong there.
Claudio Bravo emerged as the hero of the ensuing penalty shootout – managing to pull off a hat trick of saves against Ricardo Quaresma, Joao Mourinho and Nani.Kind of made up for the pretty horrendous season he had between the posts for Manchester City.
So Chile is through to the finals and if they win – they won’t win next year’s world cup.That’s the way it goes.
