Chile goalkeeper Claudio Bravo was at fault for Paulinho's opening goal on Tuesday and hinted he might be set finish up at International level.

The 34-year-old conceded it might be the right moment to call time on a decorated stint at the highest level.

"I'm going to take some time to think," Bravo told La Tercera. "Another four years wears you down tremendously. Things will be decided with calmness, I have to talk to important people before deciding.

"Whether I am  here or not, we have to continue in the same path, always having a starring role. The duty should be for the team to be as high as possible."

Bravo refused to be drawn on one of the controversies surrounding Chile's fall from grace – an Instagram post by his wife Carla Pardo accusing unnamed members of the side of unprofessional behaviour, including allegedly missing training due to being drunk.

"Thanks for all the beautiful times my national team. Thanks my Captain America [Bravo] for all the moments we have experienced. It was truly beautiful," Pardo's message read.

"But when one wears the [national team] jersey it has to be with professionalism. I know that the majority bust their a**, while others were partying and even missing training because of the drunkenness they had.

"If the shoe fits, wear it, and stop crying. Because now the whole country is crying. Waiting for you my captain with open arms."
