WATCH: Alexis’ venomous volley charges Chile’s knockout round clincher

Chile overcame a shaky start to seize the final Copa America Centenario knockout round spot with a 4-2 win over Panama on Tuesday in Philadelphia.

Eduardo Vargas and Alexis Sanchez both scored braces after Claudio Bravo muffed Miguel Camargo’s shot from distance to put Chile down 1-0.

The win gives Chile second place in Group D. If Argentina is shockingly blown out by Bolivia, Chile could still finish first. The Group D winner gets Venezuela and the runner-up draws Mexico.

Vargas scored his first goal in traffic before adding a second through the air.

Then Sanchez did this:

You can’t hit a volley any better than @Alexis_Sanchez just did. 🔥 🔥 🔥#CHIvPAN #MyCopaColors

Abdiel Arroyo scored late for Chile, another poor moment for Bravo who bobbled the shot into his own goal.
