Argentina 2-4 Chile (Penalty)

Mirroring the result of last year’s Copa America final in Santiago, Chile edged Argentina 4-2 on penalties after a scoreless 120 minutes in New Jersey to win the 2016 Copa America Centenario. The match, in which both sides ended with ten men, was a taut and dramatic affair but ultimately finished scoreless, requiring penalties to separate the sides. Lionel Messi fired his penalty over the crossbar and Lucas Bigilia missed his effort later on, enabling Francisco Silva to step up and secure Chile’s second consecutive Copa America title.
