FIFA World Cup 2014: Chile 23 Man Squad

Chile coach, Jorge Sampaoli, has named his 23 man squad for the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil.

Chile’s best ever World Cup was in 1960, when they placed third. In the modern era, Chile have made it to the Round of 16 in each of their last two World Cup finals appearances, 2010 and 1998.

Chile will play in the tricky Group B, which also features highly fancied Spain and their fellow 2010 World Cup Finalists, the Netherlands as well as Australia, who often perform above themselves at World Cups.
