    Bueno yo vi casi todo el partido( el 2do tiempo me lo dormi casi todo). Muy bien Chile sobre todo Sagal, Opazo, Toselli, Maripan quienes demostraron ser opciones validas para lo que viene. Opazo perfectamente podria reemplazar a ISla en un caso determinado. Toselli demostro seguridad y en este momento es mas que HErrera. Maripan nos dio estatura algo que a la defensa titular no le sobra. LEo Valencia otro que me gusto mucho por que no se esconde, por el bien de su carrera deberia irse a jugar a una liga mas competitiva.
    Lastima no haber visto a A Henriquez en accio, era como su gran opcion estos partidos. Carmona me gusto mucho sobre todo considerando que no habia jugado un partido competitivo hace tiempo. Ojala encuentre club pronto para retomar la continuidad.

    Belgium reminds me on Ivory Coast. Players around Drogba were promoted as one new wave of football expectations. Similar thing happened with several great Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, English generations who could not win anything. From today's perspective we see this in Argentina, France.

    Even Belgian league seems pretty solid.

    Congrats on your China Cup title. I knew that Iceland will be defensive.:cool:

    El más parejo durante todo el encuentro con Islandia fue Opazo. :cool:

    I think their main problem is the managers. A guy like Sampaoli could turn them into a cohesive unit. The previous Belgian manager and now Martinez do not have the acumen to win anything IMO... but the talent is there and with a good manager they could be lethal.

    Bueno ahi mismo dice lo que ya había predicho... "ganar" la copa de carton, si bien no bajamos un puesto, nos hizo perder puntos:

    Al final no perdimos tantos puntos... pero ojalá no nos pase la cuenta...

    They still think that their players are enough for victories. Similar is with Croatian coach, he is weak, no previous career at all, those 7,8 better players just use their individual quality. Belgium has much more individual quality.
    Because of their technical nature, a lot of them became injured: Kabasele, Kompany, Alderweireld, Vermaelen, Engels, Dembele, Fellaini...

    Having said that, we seem to be on the same road. Pizzi is not as good as Sampaoli IMO and I feel that, at the moment, it is our more experienced players that are lifting the team in key moments, rather than a collective effort.

    Sampaoli and Bielsa were great coachs.

    I second that, even though Pizzi has been fortunate enough to find the abilities to get a result.

    Curious to see how we do in the Confederations Cup which is such a short tournament to begin with. Most importantly our qualification to the World Cup is the main objective.

    JAP is not as great as Sampaoli but he's also not horrible: tactically Chile played great vs. Mexico, Colombia and Argentina in the Copa; as well as Uruguay in WCQ. And that Colombia match was a great display of how this group of players can in fact defend, be positionally smart as well as tactically disciplined.

    He has a different repertoire to what Chileans have gotten used to the last 8 years or so and that's not necessarily a bad thing. It doesn't have to be all gung-ho 24/7.
