In a historic turn of events, Claudio Bravo made Copa America history by becoming the oldest player in the tournament's annals. At 41 years and 69 days old, Bravo's performance was nothing short of heroic as he made four saves to ensure that Chile played to a scoreless draw against Peru.

The match, held at AT&T Stadium, was witnessed by 43,030 fervent fans. Bravo was particularly impressive in the 79th minute, when he denied a first-time shot by Gianluca Lapadula and followed it up by thwarting Paolo Guerrero's rebound attempt.

Chile nearly scored in the 16th minute when Alexis Sánchez found himself unmarked in front of the goal, only to miss the target. The physical nature of the encounter was evident with 37 fouls and four yellow cards distributed. In the standings, Chile and Peru still trail Argentina in Group A.
