One Chilean player has given new meaning to the idea of never forgetting.
Striker Mauricio Pinilla almost won the game for his team against Brazil in the round of 16, sending a curling strike just over the bar.
Brazil went on to win the match in penalties.
But for Pinilla, that miss will now have a permanent place … on his back … in ink.

Pinilla also missed one of the penalty kicks that kept Chile from advancing. That one was not inked on his back.
