Blackburn's Brereton hits winner for Chile – highlights & report

Blackburn’s Ben Brereton scored the winner on his first start for Chile as they beat Bolivia in the Copa America.

Striker Brereton, who was born in Stoke-On-Trent, played for England at youth level.

He opted to represent Chile’s senior team and is eligible to play for La Roja as his mother was born there.

The 22-year-old scored inside 10 minutes when he picked up a loose ball on the edge of the box before slotting past Bolivia’s Carlos Lampe.

After drawing their opener 1-1 with Argentina, Chile’s win puts them top of Group A on four points, with games against Uruguay (21 June) and Paraguay (25 June) still to come.
