Late penalty miss denies Chile
CHILE were eliminated from the women’s World Cup after missing a late penalty that would have sent them through in a 2-0 win over Thailand on Thursday.
Francisca Lara’s 86th-minute spot kick-rattled the bar as Chile finished third in Group F but short by one goal of advancing into the knockout stage.
