Reigning champions Chile advanced to the semi-finals of the Copa America on Friday after beating Colombia 5-4 in a penalty shootout following a 0-0 draw at the Corinthians arena.

Alexis Sanchez got the winning kick for Chile after William Tesillo missed Colombia’s last attempt.

Chile, who won both the 2015 and 2016 Copa America finals on penalties, had two goals chalked off after video assistant referee reviews.
