Eduardo Vargas celebrates scoring the winner in last night’s pulsating Copa America semi-final. His stunning strike secured Chile’s 2-1 victory against their bitter rivals Peru and sets up a home final clash between themselves and either Argentina or Paraguay. Vargas hit a double in match that also saw a straight red for Peruvian Carlos Zambrano. The animosity between the two countries dates back to the four-year ‘War of the Pacific’ at the end of the nineteenth century.
