    Chile played much of the match with ten men and barely lost to the big pre-tournament candidate. And they only lost due to a couple of correctable mistakes.

    I think if they keep playing the way they've been playing, and they improve the effectiveness in converting their chances, they have a very good chance to upset Brazil. They have created lots of chances, but they need to start scoring more goals!

    The thing is, with the way Brazil plays, they're just going to absorb the Chilean attack and counter. And Brazil on the counter against a stretched Chilean defense is worrying to say the least.

    Hey bro, from my "rat mentality", I can tell you, I am more objective in my point of view, while you seem to be somewhere in between Fantasyland and Shangrilah, 48 years since our last victory in a WC, 60 years since we had one, outside our own country. Oh yes, the paper allows a lot where you can write on, but the fact is that wins have to be achieved and no matter how strong is your team, if your team doesn`t do what has to be done, you`ll never achieve it. Wake up, bro, we had extraordinary players in all that lapse of time and no one was able to do it until this team. I have my right to feel as I do, and as me, I think that most of the chileans who cellebrated each of those wins agrees with me, maybe it is because they also are proud of our "rat mentality"........

    btw, your analogy is full of ignorance, if you knew a little about rat behaviour, you`d realize that those animals are very smart.

    Suazo needs to make a heroic comeback! Can't believe the top S.American goalscorer hasn't had a chance to shine yet. Hopefully by now he should be returning to match fitness.

    Brazil will be his target.

    well it was a good game, we desperately need one of our forwards fully fit...

    About objectives, think reaching second round was the minimum objective, so nothing to brag about there, what we can brag about is the way in which we made it, never bunkering, even against a favorite like Spain and with 10 players, no other team can say that.

    This game was also terrible for me. As a half-Chilean, I hoped for a Mexico-Chile final but this game was the momentum shift for Chile in a bad way. If weren't for Valdivia's weak effort to pass the Xabi Alonso, Bravo would have not left the box and that goal might never happened. We could had tied and faced Portugal rather than our usual opponents that we lose to, Brazil.
