It wasn’t supposed to end like that.

Mexico’s hopes of a first Copa America triumph weren’t just dashed by Chile in a one-sided quarter-final on Saturday. They were stamped on, put through a blender and then incinerated.

After 22 games without defeat, a run that stretched back 364 days, El Tri were routed 7-0 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
