​Man City keeper Bravo saves THREE penalties to send Chile into Confederations Cup final

Chile advanced to the final of the Confederations Cup on Wednesday after defeating Portugal 3-0 on penalties.

The match ended goalless following 120 minutes of play.

For Portgual, their match would remain goalless even into penalties, as Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo saved all three of Portugal's spot-kicks.

Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal's emphatic opening penalty would set the tone for the rest of the shootout.

Bravo quelled the usual penalty nerves, keeping out Ricardo Quaresma, Joao Moutinho and Nani to help La Roja cruise to victory.
