In the game night, Jashir stabs Lisa at the stands of the stadium so as to set up Sergio. Though he doesn’t kill her but keeps her alive for the purpose.

The whole nation celebrates his leadership and lauds him for helping Chile win Copa America after ages.
But his joy is short-lived as after the game he sees his wife kissing one of his players.

Nené the savior?

Sergio pays Lisa for helping them out but she asks for more. This is when Nené sneaks up right behind her and chokes her with her waist belt.
Well, that’s the main topic here. Let’s break it down. In the final episode, there are many sequences that seem fictional such as Sergio giving an inspiring speech to his players before the game. As revealed by the narrator, Lisa and Jashir were completely fictional. This suggests that in real life, Sergio never went through a catharsis where he threatened his own right-hand man or even tried to kill an FBI agent. The main purpose of this was to create an atmosphere of drama and suspense to give the viewers a thrill.
What happened in real life?
In real life, the situation was completely different. Sergio completely cooperated with the FBI. As a result, everyone involved in the scandal of CONMEBOL was convicted but managed to escape their trials by paying hefty fines. Some of them, who were opportunists, even took advantage of this situation and somehow managed to draw benefits out of it. As for the ANFP, it was left with a debt of billions, but strangely, when the books of their debt were settled, $3.5 million had disappeared into thin air.
