WC 2010 - Match 47 - Group H : Chile vs Spain
« on: June 25, 2010, 04:18:25 AM »
Chile-Spain preview

Group H leaders Chile go into their crucial game against Spain full of confidence after collecting wins in their first two matches. Vicente Del Bosque's team recovered from their opening defeat by Switzerland with a 2-0 reverse of Honduras, and know that victory in their final outing will definitely take them through.

The match
Chile-Spain, Group H, Loftus Versfeld Stadium, Tshwane/Pretoria, 20:30 (local time)

Spain have won six and drawn one of their seven meetings with Chile, scoring 18 goals and conceding only three in the process. Although that record suggests the Iberians should be confident ahead of this decisive duel, they are sure to be paying the South Americans great respect, especially as they trail the section pacesetters by three points.

Marcelo Bielsa’s charges have been impressive in collecting maximum points so far, playing some enterprising football and creating a host of chances along the way. Stunned by the Swiss, the UEFA EURO 2008 champions recovered some of their poise against Honduras on Monday, and will be hoping to complete their recovery against Chile.

Players to watch
David Villa v Claudio Bravo

The Spanish striker hit both his side’s goals against Los Catrachos, and could have had a hat-trick had he not hit the woodwork and also shot wide from the penalty spot. On top of his game against the central Americans, El Guaje will be looking to add to his tournament goal tally at the Loftus Versfeld, although to do that he will need to find a way past Claudio Bravo in the Chile goal.

The Real Sociedad custodian has yet to be beaten in South Africa and is in buoyant mood after his club colleagues regained their place in the Spanish top flight, where next season he will come up against Villa, who signed for Barcelona before the world finals began.

The stat
3 - The number of Chile players who played their club football in La Liga last year. Claudio Bravo (Real Sociedad), Fabian Orellana (Deportivo Xerez) and Humberto Suazo (Real Zaragoza) will be hoping their in-depth knowledge of the Spanish game will help them sink Vicente del Bosque’s side.

What they said
“We know that a draw will be enough for Chile, and we also know it’s going to be a tricky match, because they are not used to just sitting back and defending. We are confident though,” Fernando Torres, Spain forward.

“We always try to take the game to our opponents but sometimes it depends not on what your intentions are but on what the opposition wants to do. We’ll try to force the pace against Spain because that’s the best way to overcome your opponent in my opinion. And in any case, we are not through yet,” Marcelo Bielsa, Chile coach.

Voice of the fans
“Spain might be everyone’s favourites but I haven’t seen a team with as much commitment, heart and strength as Chile for many years. We have waited a long time for an opportunity like this and I know we will reach the Final,” kcodemon (Chile), FIFA.com user.

The question
Favourites to win the group, Spain now find themselves in danger of going out. Can the European champions rally and claim a place in the last 16?

Chile are an exciting team, but I am not sure their Kamakaze approach will work today. Last game they had 3 minutes left and they up 1-0 and were still attacking with 6. They prefere to play a 3-4-3 with a diamond midfield, with two wingers and a striker, which means Spain could out number them in midfield. Besila has played 4 at the back against team that play 3 upfront so maybe he will change.
Really looking forward to this game

The game living up to expectations but Chile doing all the work.

Right now Spain have to be hoping that Honduras beat Switzerland.

Also Chile is absolutely the HARDEST running side of thie tournament. They attacking with pace with just 3 defenders but as soon as they lose the ball everybody dropping and with just as much pace. And they doing it smart , closing on the ball at the same time.

Is a shame they missing Suazo.

THE WARRIORS WILL NOT BE DENIED.

Tell me that referee not out to get Chile? Tell me that. Italy home, France Home, You cannot send home Spain also. Plus if Spain finish 2nd they meeting Brazil which means one of them going home.
 3 yellow cards in no time for Chile, Spanish player falling like a teenage girl at a Jonas Brothers Concert.

This is absolute  :bs:    right now. The referees and FIFA is making this thing to obvious.
