RIO DE JANEIRO, July 1 (UPI) -- Chilean striker Mauricio Pinilla doesn't want to forget his pain.

Pinilla was just "one centimeter from glory" when he hit the crossbar in the last minutes of extra time in a game against Brazil that ended Chile's World Cup hopes.

Instead of pushing the agonizing near-win out of his memory, Pinilla went straight to the tattoo parlor for some ink depicting his missed goal.
