We have seen the last matches they have played, against Argentina, Venezuela and Russian Federation and we have seen the quality of this team. This suggested that Cameroon were not going to make it.Yet they went on to win the trophy.
Chile will rely heavily on Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez and Bayern Munich superstar Arturo Vidal.
Though Claudio Bravo's absence through injury is a major blow to Roja hopes, they do have the players to back up that billing, with Eduardo Vargas back in among the goals and Alexis Sanchez is just one strike away from becoming Chile's all-time leading goalscorer. In the way that they have played quality teams such as Uruguay (who they embarrassed 3-1), Colombia, Argentina and Romania.
South American champion Chile faces Cameroon on Sunday, before playing against Germany and Australia in its remaining group stage games. When you see what Chile have done over the past few years, with their power and technique.
They will have to do so without team captain and key asset Claudio Bravo, who did not miss a match at the last two FIFA World Cup™ finals or the last four Copa America competitions.
"The ideal for us will be to show better performance compared to what we have demonstrated [in the 4-0 loss to Colombia]". Currently, they are one of the best teams in the world.
"We arrived really well and with enough hope, we believe that we can achieve great things", Celta Vigo's Diaz told ESPN.
"Quality sporting content was the reason we acquired such sporting rights as the FIFA World Cup in over 48 territories in Africa and other sporting event such as the Serie A, Bundesliga, French Ligue 1, Chinese Super League, Eredivisie". If we don't have this, we won't win the game tomorrow.
We are getting a pretty good price on Chile winning this game and as a result of that I think this is by far the best bet that is to be made.
