SAO PAULO (AP) — On a day many football fans expected Harry Kane to shine at the European Championship, it was an Englishman playing for Chile at Copa America who managed to put the ball into the back of the net.
Born in Stoke, 22-year-old Ben Brereton scored Chile’s goal in a 1-0 win over Bolivia on Friday. He plays for Blackburn Rovers, which competes in the Championship. His mother is Chilean.
Kane and his English team frustrated fans with a goalless draw against Scotland hours earlier.
Chile now leads group A with four points after two matches.
