155 Days “Chile 15 del Mundo”


Chile are Team 13 with a FIFA ranking of 15 in the World. Seven previous World Cup appearances with their best result back in 1962 when they hosted the tournament and finished 3rd. 

Their last trip to the World Cup was back in 1998 and were coached by a Uruguayan. After 12 years they return to the World Cup with an Argentinian coach. Expectations are high for the Chileans who see Bielsa (Chile Coach) as the saviour for Chilean futbol. The Chile squad have the youngest average player age of all the South American teams, however a lack of experience could be their downfall. 

Chile are in Group H with Spain, Switzerland and Honduras. Their first game is against Honduras who at one stage were the possible play off candidate for Uruguay. Chile will need a good start to the tournament with a win,  if they hope to qualify from this group. If Chile qualify 1st or 2nd in Group H they will either possibly meet Brazil or Portugal in the second round.
