The Gophers appeared to take the lead on a beautiful touchdown throw by Mitch Leidner to Drew Wolitarsky, but a review showed that he was down at the one yard line. Down 29-26, with a timeout left, Minnesota wasted most of its time before a Leidner incompletion on first down.

But Sanchez’s goal put the two-time defending champions into the last eight with a game to spare in the group, with Gabriel Achilier seeing red late on for Ecuador.Chile made the perfect start, taking an eighth-minute lead through Fuenzalida.A corner was only partly cleared by Ecuador and Fuenzalida smashed a loose ball in off the inside of the post for his fifth international goal.Chile were the dominant side early, but they were pegged back against the run of play in the 26th minute.Jhegson Mendez was brought down by goalkeeper Gabriel Arias after getting on the end of a pass and Valencia converted down the middle to take his tally of international goals to 29.Chile were increasingly direct as the half went on as both teams struggled to impact in the attacking third, while fouls saw the game robbed of rhythm.However, Chile restored their lead early in the second half thanks to Sanchez.Charles Aranguiz created space for a cross from the right and Sanchez, unmarked at the back post, side-footed his effort into the corner.Ecuador goalkeeper Alexander Dominguez was called into action in the 64th minute, doing well to push away an Erick Pulgar header from a corner.Chile managed to control the remainder of the contest and Ecuador’s Achilier was sent off in the 89th minute for elbowing Arturo Vidal. EN VIVO #LaRoja72′ Sigue el triunfo de Chile sobre Ecuador en la segunda fecha del Grupo C. 2-1 #VamosChile #CopaAmerica pic.twitter.com/1GDogcp1Im— Selección Chilena (@LaRoja) June 22, 2019What does it mean?

Chile are on track to finish top, which would hand them a quarter-final against a third-placed team.Sanchez strikes againThe attacker endured a miserable season with Manchester United and his two Copa America goals already better the one he managed in 20 Premier League games in 2018-19. Sanchez has impressed in glimpses at the tournament so far, but he is at least recapturing some goalscoring form.Aranguiz the unsung hero for ChileWith all eyes on Sanchez and Vidal, Aranguiz has made the most of having less attention on him so far. The Bayer Leverkusen is already up to three assists at the Copa America, including setting up both of Sanchez’s goals.3 – Charles Aránguiz assisted Chile’s second goal against Ecuador (netted by Alexis Sánchez) and became the top assist provider in the 2019 Copa America (3).
