2017 FIFA Confed. Cup: Chile sail into final after penalty shootout win over Portugal

Kazan, Russia (PANA) - Chile on Wednesday defeated Portugal 3-0 in a penalty shootout to qualify for Sunday's finals of the 2017 FIFA Confederation Cup in Russia.

After a pulsating regulation and extra time in the first semi-final, the deadlock was broken during the penalty shootout. Arturo Vidal, Charles Aránguiz and Alexis Sanchez scored from the penalty spot for Chile while Ricardo Quaresma, Joao Moutinho and Nani all squandered the Portuguese kicks to push Chile to their maiden appearance in the final.

The Portuguese will now challenge for third-place on Sunday.

The second semi-final on Thursday is between Germany and Mexico, winners in 1999.
