Copa America champions Chile got their 2018 World Cup Qualifying campaign off to a flyer after seeing off Dunga’s men with strikes‎ from Eduardo Vargas and Alexis Sanchez.

Chile had threatened to score throughout the match with Alexis Sanchez and Mauricio Isla hitting the post before Eduardo Vargas’ 72nd minute side-footed ‎finish broke the deadlock to send fans at the Estadio Nacional Julio Martinez Pradanos in Santiago into celebratory mood.
Arsenal Superstar Alexis Sanchez made sure of the points with a tap-in on the stroke of full-time to earn Chile the win against Brazil‎ for the first time since 2000.
Brazil never got going in Santiago and were significantly lightweight without their banned talisman Neymar, but have the opportunity to bounce back‎ with the home game against Venezuela on the horizon while in-form Chile travel to face Peru in an attempt to continue their 100% record in the Qualifiers.
