Coming in the wake of playing Chile’s national anthem instead of Uruguay’s on Sunday, the organisers of Copa America 2016 scored another musical own-goal ahead of Chile’s clash with Argentina in Santa Clara, California.

While the Chilean team were passionately belting out Himno Nacional de Chile, dome-headed rapper Pitbull sonically defecated all over the anthem…

Apparently, the track from ‘Mr International’ himself was next up to be played at the Levi’s Stadium, only for someone with an itchy trigger finger to accidentally press play.

As for the game itself, Argentina got revenge for their defeat to Chile in the final last year, winning 2-1 courtesy of goals from Angel Di Maria and Ever Banega, with José Pedro Fuenzalida netting a late consolation for La Roja.
