Chile goes to the World Cup playing a football never seen before by its fans. After the coach Marcelo “Loco” Bielsa left, the new commander Jorge Sampaoli are making a great job.
With victories against the strong Uruguay and England, besides the draw with Spain, the Chilean national team seems to be a thorn in Spain and Netherlands’ side. These two country are Chile’s opponent in Group B, with Australia. More than that, at yesterday´s friendly match against Germany, the result does not reflect Chile’s performance. The South American team pressed the Germans in Stuttgart and almost tied the game.
Check who are the main names of Chile:
Alexis Sanchez (Barcelona-SPA): he’s the great star of the team. Current Barcelona’s top striker, Sanchez has been an important piece in Barça’s system. He’s a player with a past of important titles: Argentinian and Spanish champion, FIFA Clubs World Cup and many others. Main characteristics: passing, assists and shooting.
Eduardo Vargas (Valencia-SPA): the striker is the second half of Chile’s attack. Currently, he plays in the Spanish football, but yesterday was in Gremio, playing the Brazilian championship. For that reason, he probably will be used to the atmosphere Brazilian fans can create. Main characteristics: crossing, dribbling and shooting.
Arturo Vidal (Juventus-ITA): Italian champion in the last season in Juventus, Vidal was elected the best player of the team for two years in a row. Certainly, he will be a key player in Chilean system. Main characteristics: tackling, strength and passing.
