Chile players react as their World Cup fate is sealed

Claudio Bravo's wife blames 'drunkenness' for Alexis Sanchez's World Cup heartbreak

The first half featured a very physical encounter between the two sides, with hard fouls and yellow cards from both teams.

For North and Central America, only Costa Rica and Mexico are qualified, and there's one space to be determined, aside from the fourth-place play-off match.

Chile tried to find a goal but without any luck, as Brazil scored from a counter in the 92nd minute after goalkeeper Bravo had gone up for a corner. "Our obligation is always to win".

At halftime, a very physical affair lacking quality had no goals, and deservedly so. "Now it is different, we have the talents like Neymar and Gabriel Jesus and the coach is a nice, competent guy".

"Thank you lads, for everything, for all these years together. for teaching me and for showing a country that with effort and work anything is possible in life", said the 30-year-old, who told reporters he was ready for retirement after defeat to Bolivia during the previous international break.

According to Skysports, it took a mistake from Claudio Bravo to let Brazil open their tally, a Neymar free-kick was struck over the wall but Bravo managed to get a hand to it. The team has 26 points, having won eight matches, while losing seven.

Vidal, who has previously helped his country to Copa America success in 2015 and 2016, says that he has taken the decision to call it quits with his "soul crushed". In truth, Chile had brought about their own downfall.

Pizzi, who led the nation to the Copa America title last year, said he was to blame for Chile's failure to reach Russia 2018.

Bravo, a 115-times capped international, is now mulling over whether it is time to end his journey as part of the senior set up for his national side, but remained coy on the possibility when quizzed on his future by La Tercera. "We are big people and everyone takes responsibility for things".

"Of these options, I rule myself out".

That means two of the world's best players will not be performing on the world stage: Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal.
