    Seems an extremely mature way to accept defeat. It is such a shame that Uruguay have embarrassed themselves recently. They could learn from Chile.

    Hope Colombia win the Cup.

    It seems to me that Uruguay are vying with The Dark Country for the title of “Worst administered country situated along the banks of the Plate”!

    There is immense competition from nobody else. :o)

    @ #1. The very least Pres. Bachelet should have done. A great team effort, and a future world cup winner. Tragedy with the goalpost, but a rivetting game of football to watch - quite the best of the series thus far. England could learn much!
