Chile Football Fans

Chile! Chile! Chile!


Chile made squad announcement on Twitter.

They made an epic gaffe that would leave Arsenal fans surprised, slightly angry or in laughter. Embattled Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez was named with a FC Bayern Munich badge.

The player is rumoured to be set to exit the Premier League side this summer. Bayern are amongst the clubs that are seeking his signature. While the deal has not been struck it seems the Chilean authorities want him there already.

The Copa America champions are set to play World Cup winners Germany, Australia and Africa Nations Cup winners Cameroon in the Confederations Cup this summer. Juan Antonio Pizzi is set to lead the team to the tournament hence the list of players that are invited for preparations.

Sanchez could move to any of Bayern, Paris St Germain or Manchester City. While Arsenal would prefer to keep him, if they want to sell Arsene Wenger would do as much as possible to sell to a club outside instead of a local rival. This leaves French side PSG and Bayern as the likely employers of the 28-year old. Bayern presents stability and they have a higher chance in Europe so the Chile international might prefer a move there. (more…)


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.
