Pinilla: One centimetre from glory

Cagliari forward Mauricio Pinilla has ensured he will never forget his near-miss for Chile against Brazil at the World Cup.

In the closing stages of extra-time of their Round of 16 clash on Saturday evening, Pinilla lashed a shot from just outside the penalty area that struck the crossbar before rebounding back into play.

Whilst the South Americans were then eliminated on penalties, the 30-year-old has ensured he will never forget the moment, by getting a tattoo of it on his back.

Alongside an image of a prone Julio Cesar watching the ball hit the bar reads the text: ‘One centimetre from glory’.
