Chile v Peru: Copa América semi-final – as it happened

A stunning goal from Eduardo Vargas gave host nation Chile a 2-1 win in a pulsating match against 10-man Peru, sending them to their first final since 1987 2.30am BST And I’ll leave you to digest it at your leisure. Thanks for your company this evening, it’s been hugely enjoyable. See you again soon, and goodnight. 2.29am BST I’m going to reproduce in full another long read sent to me during the game from Peter Kozak, because it’s very interesting on the background to Chile’s success and what it means to the nation: “Copa America has certainly hit Chile at a turbulent time.

NRL: five things we learned from round 16 | Paul Connolly

The game is far from ‘soft’; the Dragons momentarily lose their fire; Sharks fire when blood’s in the water; here come the Panthers; and Belmore - a big success No doubt the game of rugby league has become increasingly sanitised. The boot-flying anarchy of the scrum has been jettisoned for the charade we have now, shoulder charges have been outlawed, and things have got so nanny state that, get this, you can’t even punch an opponent in the face anymore without sanction!
