Blackburn Rovers striker Ben Brereton grabs Chile winner in Copa America

Ben Brereton was Chile's Copa America hero as he scored his first international goal.

The 22-year-old Blackburn striker scored the winner as his side beat Bolivia 1-0 in Cuiaba on Friday night.

Stoke-born Brereton represented England at U19 and U20 level before switching to represent Chile.

His mother was born in the South American country, and he was called up to their squad in March for the World Cup qualifiers.

Brereton made his international debut in the 1-1 draw against Argentina on Monday in their Copa America opener.
