Portugal boss Fernando Santos defended his penalty takers, pointing to the fact the trio netted penalties as his side won the European title last year.

He said: "It was an excellent game, two excellent teams. They both showed they wanted to win. Portugal started very well. We were able to surprise the Chile team. "In the first 20 minutes we were better. We had chances we didn’t score.

"In the last few minutes of extra time they did have good opportunities, but before that it was very balanced.

"Chile was the winner and the fair winner. Congratulations," Santos added.
