Commentary

Chile will take on Mexico in the quarter-finals, while Panama go home early as they look ahead to September's World Cup qualifiers. That's all for our live coverage, goodbye!
A brace each for Eduardo Vargas and Alexis Sanchez send La Roja through to the knockout stage as they become the first team to win at the 2016 Copa America after trailing. Miguel Camargo put the CONCACAF outfit ahead early thanks to a Claudio Bravo howler, but a pair of first-half goals from Vargas sent Chile into the break ahead. Alexis added to their lead, and then removed all doubt with his second late on after Abdiel Arroyo gave Panama a glimmer of hope courtesy of another Bravo error.
FULL-TIME: CHILE 4-2 PANAMA!
M. Isla
Yellow Card
Chile
WHAT IS ISLA THINKING?! The right-back will miss the Mexico match as he picks up his second yellow of the group stage for an absolutely senseless and unnecessary challenge on the flank!
There will be three minutes added on at the end of this match.
E. Roco
G. Medel
Chile
Enzo Roco is also on, with Medel giving way.
P. Hernández
A. Vidal
Chile
Pablo Hernandez replaces Vidal for stoppage time.
J. Fuenzalida
Assist
Chile
Assist for Fuenzalida, who picked out a delightful delivery to spot the run of Alexis Sanchez.
A. Sánchez
Goal
Chile
THEY'RE THROUGH IN STYLE! Chile book their place in the quarter-finals as Alexis latches onto the end of Fuenzalida's cross to send a finish past Penedo, who has to be overwhelmed at this point.
PENEDO CONTINUES TO BE EXCELLENT! The Panama keeper dives across and somehow manages to get a strong hand to Puch's effort from in close, after a delightful bit of interplay in the build-up. The rebound nearly falls for Fuenzalida, but Machado clears!
DEFLECTED OVER! Vidal and Alexis debate over who gets to take a free-kick spotted dead-centre, just a few yards outside the area. The Arsenal forward wins the argument, but his strike hits off the wall and behind for a corner.
Chile had 16 shots on target through the first two matches – more than any other side in this Copa America.
OFFSIDE! Torres looks to the sky in disbelief as the flag goes up, denying him a clean break on goal with no defender within 10 yards of him. It was the right decision, however, from the linesman, as the substitute started his run a second early.
Panama are showing signs of life, at least with their ability to slow this Chile attack, something they had no success with for the greater part of this match. They're pushing the pace accordingly when they win back possession, and you get the sense that they may just have another goal in them - but two could be a tall order.
A. Henríquez
Yellow Card
Panama
Alexis is getting fouled every time he touches the ball. He's going to wake up sore tomorrow after this latest challenge from Amilcar Henriquez, who goes into the book.
Well it's not over just yet! Panama still need two more goals, but they'll be feeling more confident than they were just a few minutes ago. And with confidence so important to a goalkeeper's repertoire, you would have to imagine Panama will be throwing everything at Bravo from here on out.
A. Arroyo
Goal
Panama
PANAMA ARE BACK IN IT WITH A FIGHTING CHANCE! Another absolute howler for Bravo, who's having arguably his worst night in a Chile shirt. Arroyo gets on the end of a scramble in the area following a free-kick. He sends a header straight at Bravo, who fumbles it into his own net at the near post!
STAT: The only two teams to have conceded 5+ goals in this Copa America have been Haiti (vs Brazil) and Panama (vs Argentina).
H. Cummings
Yellow Card
Panama
Cummings goes into the book, the second Panama player to be issued a yellow, for a really cynical challenge on Alexis out wide as frustration sets in.
R. Buitrago
A. Quintero
Panama
A final roll of the dice for Panama as Quintero is replaced by Ricardo Buitrago.
NEARLY THROUGH TO SANCHEZ! Vital piece of defending from Cummings, who manages to halt his momentum and reach a foot out to knock Vargas' cross clear when it was poised to land kindly at the feet of the Arsenal forward atop the six-yard box!
FEARLESS GOALKEEPING! Vidal's mouth waters at the prospects of a free-kick from 30 yards. Chile pack the bodies inside the area as the Bayern midfielder powers a cross in with pace, but Penedo flies into the crowd and punches clear!
This has to be so frustrating for Panama, who can't seem to win the ball back as Chile pass circles around them all over the pitch. La Roja are looking so confident in possession, really starting to hit their stride ahead of what's setting up to be a quarter-final date with Mexico.
STAT: This is the first meeting between these two sides in the Copa America, however Chile are unbeaten in their three previous friendly games (W2 D1).
SPLENDID STOP! Vidal is eager to add to his brace against Bolivia, as he unleashes a well-struck effort at goal from 25 yards. It has Penedo scrambling across to his far post, and he's just able to get a hand to it, knocking behind for a corner!
E. Puch
J. Beausejour
Chile
Chile make their first change of the night, and unsurprisingly it's Beausejour - who picked up a knock in the first half and has run his tail off tonight - replaced. Edson Puch is on.
DREADFUL EFFORT! Panama, needing three goals, have thrown caution to the wind. Machado is picked out in space in the top corner of the Chile penalty area with time and space, but pokes a harmless effort wide of the near post! He had Quintero crying out for a cross, unmarked at the far post.
It's the end product that's letting Panama down here! They're creating chances that are just begging to be finished, but it's not happening for them. Torres gets on the end of the latest delivery, but he's put under pressure from Jara and lifts an effort over the bar!
STAT: Chile have won only game in the Copa America against CONCACAF opponents – that was a 2-1 win against Mexico in 2011.
M. Camargo
Yellow Card
Panama
Camargo flies into a reckless challenge on Beausejour and picks up a yellow. Panama are unraveling.
E. Vargas
Assist
Chile
Vargas continues to make a statement, with an assist now to go with his first-half brace.
A. Sánchez
Goal
Chile
CHILE SPRINTING INTO THE QUARTER-FINALS! What a response from La Roja, and this one's a stunner! Quality in every facet of the build-up! Vargas is sprung through into the final third and lifts a terrific ball towards Alexis, who does brilliantly to lash a venomous volley into the top corner! That was far from easy a take at the pace that delivery came in!
ALMOST A DREAM START FOR PANAMA! Off the bench and making himself a nuisance already, Arroyo sprints beyond a stunned Chile defence and has a clean look at goal from the edge of the area, but blasts over! That's the goal Panama so desperately needed to turn the tides!
G. Torres
L. Tejada
Panama
Gabriel Torres enters the fray at the expense of Luis Tejada.
A. Arroyo
R. Nurse
Panama
Interesting swaps from Panama at the break as they replace their two forwards. Abdiel Arroyo is on for Nurse, while...
Here we go again!
HALF-TIME: CHILE 2-1 PANAMA – a deserved lead for the reigning champions thanks to a brace from Vargas. But not before a Bravo howler saw Camargo open the scoring for Panama, who need a win to reach the quarter-finals. Vargas put away a rebound and then a header to see Chile lead after an entertaining half.
J. Beausejour
Assist
Chile
Beausejour found plenty of space down the left and his cross was perfect to a charging Vargas, who made no mistake with his finish.
E. Vargas
Goal
Chile
GOAL!! Vargas powers a header into the bottom corner from a delightful Beausejour cross for his second and Chile deservedly lead.
Sanchez fires a free-kick from out wide straight into the wall before Beausejour shoots high and wide from long range.
Sanchez finds Medel with a corner to the back post, but the defender is left reaching for it and can’t direct his header on target.
This could yet get frustrating for Chile and dangerous on the break, with Medel now moving forward with the ball trying to find a final pass.
Panama are sitting relatively deep with five at the back and three midfielders in front of them. Chile are managing to move them around though, and are also threatening from wide areas.
It seems like a matter of time before Chile take the lead, as Vargas sends a header wide. 
Vargas with a strike from just outside the area, but he has put it wide as Chile continue to push for a second.
Like his team, Alexis Sanchez has made a very lively start. He is finding plenty of space between the lines and creating for Chile.
SO CLOSE! Twice Vidal threatens with headers. The first time he is denied by a fantastic Penedo save before putting a second one over.
Possession has been dominated by Chile, but they look somewhat vulnerable at the back with the space being left for Panama to try and expose.
Chile are continuing to threaten as Isla tries to find Sanchez, but his header is easily dealt with by Penedo.
CHANCE! Aranguiz threatens for Chile from an angle, but he is unable to get enough on his effort.
That goal was coming for Chile after their early pressure in what has been an open and entertaining start to this clash.
E. Vargas
Goal
Chile
GOAL!! Vargas has levelled for Chile! A fine move by Chile and Sanchez’s shot is brilliantly kept out by Penedo, but Vargas is on hand to put away the rebound.
Through Sanchez and Vidal, Chile are looking dangerous as they are caught offside twice in a matter of minutes. But Panama are finding plenty of space going forward.
A dangerous cross from Mauricio Isla is cleared by Panama and they again manage to deal with the corner.
The Camargo effort bounced right in front of Bravo and he tried to push it away, only to get the slightest touch and see it go into the back of the net.
G. Gómez
Assist
Panama
Gabriel Gomez played the pass to Camargo, who unleashed a somewhat hopeful effort that proved too much for Bravo.
M. Camargo
Goal
Panama
GOAL! Miguel Camargo fired an effort from about 30 yards and it was straight at Claudio Bravo, but he is unable to handle it and Panama lead 1-0!
Chile are dominating possession in the opening exchanges and Jean Beausejour wins an early corner, which is easily cleared.
We’re underway!
Chile are second in Group D, three points behind leaders Argentina. They have an even goal difference, while Panama are third – also on three points but with a -4 goal difference.
Chile and Panama are playing for a spot in the quarter-finals as they meet at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
