Chile lost the game in a penalty shootout.

Brazil beat Chile in each of the three previous World Cups in which they competed: 1962, 1998, and 2010.

Chile exceeded expectations in the World Cup, beating the reigning world and European champions Spain 2-0.

Twitter users were shocked the soccer star would want a permanent reminder of his heartbreaking missed goal.
