Three things England can expect from Chile friendly - originally posted on Soccerlens.com

England have lined up November friendlies with Chile and Germany after qualifying for the World Cup finals earlier this week.

Anyone who watched the Wembley Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund this past May knows plenty about what sort of test Germany will pose.

There are or were, in a few cases -certain possibilities when it comes to international and the misbehavior of its participants: Gabriel Tamas might get drunk, Adrian Mutu might hit someone, Zlatan might care, the Czech national team may be found in the general vicinity of ladies of the night and someone somewhere in South America is going to get suspended for a party.

Chile: The Beautiful Journey that was World Cup 2010 is a post from: Just Football

Overview

After twelve years of absence, Chile returned to the world stage. Two wins and a loss saw us finish second in Group H, before falling to Brazil in the second round. Fancied by many for their attacking tactics, Chile suffered from a lack of goals throughout the tournament.

Adios Chile

Chile were helpless to dispel pre-match predictions as Brazil ran out comfortable winners in Johannesburg. With their gung-ho style suiting Brazil's electric counter attacking football and Dunga's immaculate and ruthless record against Marcelo Bielsa's side to date, Chile were largely un-fancied despite the enterprising football that has won the hearts of football purists across the globe and a well deserved place in the second round but Brazil's professionalism shone through to not give Chile even a sniff.

Chile 1-0 Switzerland – Behrami sees red as La Roja prevail

Chile 1-0 Switzerland Behrami sees red as La Roja prevail is a post from: Just Football

Chile secured their second 1-0 win of the tournament, yet qualification is far from being assured. Having won so many plaudits for their attacking display that overwhelmed Honduras, Chile's fluent football was disrupted by a surface ridden with divots which caused problems, particularly with Chile's slick passing game.

Former Liverpool winger Mark Gonzalez scored a winner against ten man Switzerland. The Swiss get their 67 minutes becoming the toughest defense in World Cup history beating the Italian record of 550 minutes without conceding a goal. But in the end their manful effort was not enough.

This was another officiating nightmare and Valon Behrami should never have been sent off.

Chile will play against Switzerland tomorrow, and they will probably not play with the same starting players as they did against Honduras. Why change a winning team? As I said in a previous post, Switzerland has a better player than Honduras in almost every position. Chile played very well against Honduras and should have won by several goals.

Marcelo Bielsa decided to play the expected starting eleven, the only surprise would have been if Suazo started the game, but did not because of injury. Jorge Valdivia took his spot as the center attacker; however his ideal position is somewhat farther down the field, as an attacking midfielder. The game started, and Chile took commands right away.

Group H: Jean Beseajour's goal sinks Honduras

Soccerblog at related • 0 views

Lots of dominance and lots of Alexis Sanchez. But only one goal to show for it.

Jean Beseajour, the son of a Haitian father and a Chilean Mapuche mother, scored the only goal after a beautiful move initiated by Jorge Valdivia threading the ball to Mauricio Isla, running down the right. The midfielder cut the ball back to the arriving Beseajour to bundle the ball in the 34th minute.

Match Review & Highlights: Chile 1-0 Honduras

WorldCupBlog at related • 0 views


Star striker Suazo was missing. For both teams. David Suazo of Honduras and Humberto Suazo of Chile both sat this out with injuries, and the absence of the two established strikers showed. For Chile more than Honduras though, since it was La Roja that had most of the ball and the majority of shots (20, believe it or not).

Marcelo Bielsa has chosen the 23 players who will represent Chile in the World Cup. Humberto Suazo is currently injured, but will make the team. One who is sent home is Roberto Cereceda, 25 year old defender from Colo Colo.

I had three players wrong from my early prediction from May 15th. I believed that Iturra, Morales and Valdés would make the team instead of Fierro, Estrada and Paredes.

For someone who is a Santo Andre fan...probably awesome, but not purely, as they lost.

Jorge Valdivia, who is pure flair as it is, decided to up his dosage a bit with some showboating. And he got his on the back end via a flying Anderson, whose intent and timing was none too subtle.

Despite front-page reports in France that Beckham has signed an 18-month deal with PSG, people in his camp have strongly denied that a deal has been completed.

11.11.2011 - Si a diez meses de haber asumido (como DT de la selección chilena), Claudio Borghi no terminó de combatir la sombra (comparativa) de Marcelo Bielsa (y sus "viudas"), el estallido en la Roja lo volvió a foja cero.
El complejo Pinto Durán (rebautizado como "Tinto Durán") es un polvorín desde que el Bichi decidió separar del plantel a Arturo Vidal, Jean Beausejour, Carlos Carmona, Jorge Valdivia y Gonzalo Jara por llegar 45 minutos tarde a los entrenamientos en un estado "indefendible".

Second-half substitute Cesc Fabregas scored twice as reigning European and FIFA World Cupâ„¢ champions Spain fought back from a two-goal deficit to beat Chile 3-2 in an international friendly.

Vicente Del Bosque's side were punished for a slow start as Chile raced into a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Mauricio Isla and Eduardo Vargas, but the introduction of Andres Iniesta at half-time reinvigorated the Spanish midfield.

It’s Time for FIFA to Put an End to Cheating and Diving In Soccer

EPL Talk at related • 2 views

I appeared on a CBC TV news program in Canada Monday night and was asked to defend the theatrics of soccer. The diving and the cheating that are so woven into the fabric of soccer and are most evident to the public when the World Cup takes center stage every four years. To be fair, the diving and cheating is indefensible other than the fact that this is what countries often do to gain a edge in soccer.
