CHILE WORLD CUP HOPES ON THE LINE

The golden generation of Chile might miss out on the 2018 World Cup, despite their great run in recent years.


Their World Cup performance in 2010 and 2014 are the best show for the country in recent time. Their effort on home soil in 1962 comes close. They won the 2015 Copa America on home soil, and replicated same this year, defeating the same opponent – Argentina on penalty kicks.

Chile’s managerial switch is not a bad thing, according to Marcelo Diaz

Jorge Sampaoli is 56 year old manager who rose to prominence after enjoying a successful spell in charge of the Chilean national football team where he led the national side to Copa America triumph back in 2015 as Chile emerged as the champions of the international tournament.

This was the first time in the history of the Chilean team that they had ever won the Copa America and it occurred when Jorge Sampaoli was in charge of the squad.

World Cup Qualyfing will be Exciting this Year

It’s quite an exciting week for those who like watching international Football.

Quite a few strong teams will be going head to head in the World Cup qualifying matches with all the big stars taking a break from their club duties to feature for their countries.

One of the most anticipated of the matches will be the one between Chile and Argentina.

Now that Lionel Messi is back in, the Argentina line up has simply got one notch stronger.

Jorge Sampaoli is reportedly looking to quit the national team

Chile manager Jorge Sampaoli is reportedly looking to quit the national team in order to take over as the manager of a top Brazilian club.

His decision to leave Chile may come after the national team admitted corruption charges in a recent FIFA scandal. Chilean FA pleaded guilty to the United States on certain charges related to corruption. This scandal has hit the nation just a few months after their immense success at the Copa America 2015. Even though the 55-year-old is under contract until the 2018 World Cup, he has decided to leave the national team ahead of schedule.

Jorge Sampaoli reckons defeating Brazil

Jorge Sampaoli reckons defeating Brazil just after the Copa America glory would earn Chile a lot of respect in the Football world.

Chile got better of Brazil in a World Cup qualifier yesterday and they did so comprehensively.

Yes, the Selecao in the absence of Neymar was probably not as strong as they probably would have been if the striker had been there, but, they were still a solid unit and to get better of them by a margin of 2 goals, it was a laudable show by Chile.
