Chile won the Copa America for the first time in its history after a dramatic penalty shootout against Lionel Messi's Argentina in the final in Santiago Saturday.
Messi was the only Argentine to convert his kick, but Chile was successful with all its four, the clinching effort from Alexis Sanchez sparking wild scenes of celebration in the Estadio Nacional.
A tight match had ended goalless after extra time, paving the way for the spot kicks where the host excelled.
