Chile National Football Team — 2017

First Game:1910
FIFA ranking:4

The coaching staff of the Chile national football team choose the final squad for the Confederations Cup. The list of players is as follows:

Goalkeepers: Claudio Bravo (Manchester City), Johnny Herrera (Universidad of Chile), Christopher Toselli (Universidad Katolika);

Defenders: Enzo Roco (Cruz Azul), Mauricio Isla (Cagliari), Eugenio Mena (Sport Recife), Francisco Silva (Cruz Azul), Gary Medel (Inter), Paulo Diaz (San Lorenzo), Gonzalo Chara (Universidad of Chile);

Midfielders: Charles Aranguiz (Bayer Leverkusen), Jean Beausejour (Universidad of Chile), Arturo Vidal (Bayern Munich), Felipe Gutierrez (Internacional), José Pedro Fuenzalida (Universidad Katolika), Pablo Hernandez, Marcelo Diaz (Celta Vigo);

Forwards: Leonardo Valencia (Palestino), Eduardo Vargas (Tigres UANL), Martin Rodriguez (Cruz Azul), Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal), Edson Punch (Necaxa), Angyelo Sagal (Huachipato).

The Chile national football team is rightfully considered one of the key favorites of the tournament. The team won two last Copa America and left the Argentina and Brazil national football teams out of job. In the FIFA ranking the Chileans take the highest fourth line. Considering the fact that Germany sends to the Confederations Cup its second national football team, the South Americans become the main favorites of the group and claimants for the getting into the final.

Of course, Alexis Sanchez — the leader of the London Arsenal and a creative forward — is the team leader. Arturo Vidal, the midfielder of Bayern, stands out in the central area, and Gary Medel from Inter reliably cements the center of defense.
