From the Coach

Analysis from the coach: “The most important thing at a World Cup is to make sure the players are in top form and that depends on so many different factors.” Chile coach Marcelo Bielsa


Chile is back in the World Cup for the first time since France 1998. The 1962 World Cup hosts qualified for the eighth time with ease, reckoning the poor performances in the qualifying competitions for Korea/Japan 2002 and Germany 2006, when they finished ninth and seventh respectively.

The Chileans famous forward duo of Marcelo Salas and Ivan Zamorano has given way to a new generation of players who have emerged and are ready to emulate their predecessors while advancing beyond the group phase in South Africa this summer.

They will be led by Argentinean coach Marcelo Bielsa, also known as El Loco for his unique dedication to the game, who took the reigns in 2007. The 54-year-old’s only World Cup experience came by way of a first-round exit of Argentina at the FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan 2002.

Now the former Argentina de Rosario defender will use his tactical genius, along with a hungry, mostly inexperienced but skilled squad, to make a deep run in South Africa this June.

The Chileans have probably the youngest squad in the tournament. With the average age being around 23 years old. One fresh face to look out for is Udinese in Serie A striker Alexis Sanchez. Chile’s attack is also fueled by the midfield creativity of Sporting Lisbon’s Matias Fernandez and Al Ain’s Jorge Valdivia, as well as Sanchez’s strike partner Humberto Suazo, who lead the squad with 10 goals during their qualifying campaign.

Other notable non-household names are West Brom defender Gonzalo Jara — the only Chilean in the squad currently based in the English Championship League, and former Liverpool winger Mark Gonzales, now with CSKA Moscow. Bet on Soccer at Sportsbook.com

La Roja finished a best ever second, just one point behind perennial powerhouse Brazil in South American qualifying. The side scored goals aplenty — second highest with 32 — but conceded plenty as well, 22 in all including seven in a pair of matches with the Brazilians.

Chile took 16 of their 33 points away from Santiago and finished with ten wins in all, more than any of their continental neighbors. The final win culminating in a 4-2 victory over Colombia to seal their finals place with one game remaining.

Chile could be the one team in this group to steal first from the Spaniards.

They have a very young and talented squad that could make a run if they get into the second round. I think many will be surprised as to how hot the Chile team actually is at the moment.

Their opening clash with Honduras could well be a fiery encounter while their final group match against Spain is set to be a battle of attacking styles.
