Tough test for Chile

Dpa
Thursday, June 26, 2014

SAO PAULO - Midfielder Arturo Vidal believes this generation of Chile players is the best in the country's history; now comes the moment to prove it.

Chile have faced and been beaten by Brazil in three previous World Cups but in Belo Horizonte on Sunday Vidal and company will have the chance to make history.

Only four times in their 98-year history have Chile beaten Brazil in official games — 1956, 1987, 1993 and 2000. They were beaten 4-2 by Brazil in the 1962 finals that they hosted.

They then lost 4-1 against them at France 1998 in the first knockout round. And they fell 3-0 to them in 2010 also in the first knockout stage.

Since 2000, Chile have not beaten them. Even Marcelo Bielsa could not turn the tide — he oversaw three defeats and the team conceded 11 goals.
