Just hours after the TAS ruling that sanctioned Ecuador for misinclusion of Byron Castillobut did not give rise to the request for Chili to get the Tri out of Qatar World Cup To take his place, La Roja announced on their social networks the list of 25 players to play two friendlies on the FIFA date in November, on the threshold of the great ecumenical event for which they failed to qualify.
On the 16th, those led by Eduardo Berizzo will meet in Warsaw against Poland (Argentina‘s rival on 11/30 for the third date of Group C of the World Cup). And on the 20th, the day of the inaugural ceremony and precisely the debut of Ecuador (against the local Qatar) it will be tested against Slovakia. “Complete list of La Roja that will play the FIFA date in November ‼ ️”, announced the selected one on his Twitter account.
Among the most prominent names are those of Arturo Vidal, Claudio Bravo, Paulo Díaz, Gary Medel, Guillermo Maripán, Alexis Sánchez and Ben Brereton Díaz. All of them were part of the Qualifying process in which La Roja did not get their ticket to Qatar (they finished seventh in the standings, five points behind Peru, which later lost the playoff against Australia).
The communication of the list for the friendlies so close to the CAS ruling and with the World Cup fervor on the rise, caused social networks to be filled with jokes and memes with Chile as a target. The two-time champion of America 2015/2016 had already run out of place in Russia 2018 and now stumbled in his attempt to play in the Asian World Cup. Consequently, the leadership decided to end the link with coach Martín Lasarte and replace him with the Argentine Eduardo Berizzo, who knew how to be an assistant to Marcelo Bielsa at the beginning of the golden stage of La Roja.
