SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) The wait is finally over for Chile. The title drought has ended.
Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo made a save and striker Alexis Sanchez converted the winning penalty as the hosts defeated Argentina 4-1 in a shootout after a 0-0 draw in the Copa America final on Saturday, finally winning its first major tournament.
The result extended Argentina's 22-year title drought, and Lionel Messi will continue to hear criticism for his lackluster play with the national team when it needs him the most.
