Copa America : Chile 1-2 Venezuela

Venezuela stunned Chile with a late goal to win 2-1 and reach the Copa America semi-finals for the first time in their footballing history.

Oswaldo Vizcarrondo gave the Venezuelans a lead in the 35th minute, before Chile grabbed a deserved equaliser through Humberto Suazo.

Chile pressed for a winner but it was Venezuela's Gabriel Cichero who was the hero when he followed up a fumbled free-kick to force home the rebound with just 10 minutes left.
