    This was a repeat of the game where Chile lost to Farias and Venezuela in the 2011 Copa America.

    Maripan has become a guaranteed liability. It's unfortunate because he was showing a lot of promise at the club level.

    Also, it was hard to believe that Chile was going with an ultra offensive lineup when we had 3 defenders for one lone striker who took his one opportunity from a defensive gift.

    Bad result, but good looking team. Let us not forget this is only the second or third game that Lasarte has the team and it is already a better team then Rueda ever had. I can only point at bad luck for this not being a goleada. The only downsides are Vargas not being able to score and Maripan giving them yet another penalty.

    That is a good point that was clouded by my judgment in the moment. These past two games have been the best we have looked in years. I still am in disbelief over the result last night. That was a 5 goal game. And yes it’s actually monumental that we get the Copa to get more practice with Lasarte’s system. Definitely a blessing we get more time with it before the qualifiers kick off again.

    I think the team has a better chance of qualifying now with what I’ve seen with Lasarte. He reads the games well and does not experiment in important matches. I don’t mind him trying a few new players in Copa America, as this is not an objective for this team. I think the goleador we need will be one of these “new” players.

    I still think we can get a more positive result in La Paz. It will come down to preparation.
