The news has been circulating for a long time, although the technician, Martin Lasarte, He preferred to wait as long as possible to rule out any possibility: Sánchez’s muscle injury, which left him out of his Calcio debut with Inter Milan, will also prevent him from playing for points wearing the ‘La Roja’ shirt.
The Chilean forward will count, meanwhile, with the experienced Eduardo Vargas, scorer of the squad during the last Copa América and a proven striker playing for his team.
He will be joined by the Chilean-British Benjamin Brereton, who made his debut precisely in the continental tournament where he achieved great notoriety after converting in the match against Bolivia and assisting Vargas in the duel against Uruguay. One of the surprises in the attack devised by Machete is the incorporation of Robbie Robinson, an American of Chilean descent who plays for Inter Miami FC in the northern country, a team where he has become one of the revelations due to his effectiveness in the face of goal. .

From the local media, Lasarte decided to call the forward of Colo-Colo Iván Morales, who has shown great performance in the team that to date occupies the top of the table in the national tournament. The roster, as in past commitments including Copa América, has its backbone made up of references from the Golden Generation, the group of players that gave Chile two continental titles in a row in 2015 and 2016.
In the background, the goalkeeper and captain, Claudio Bravo, leads, who will be seconded by the Racing goalkeeper, Gabriel Arias, and the Huachipato goalkeeper, Gabriel Castellón. In the defensive zone, the return of Paulo Díaz, one of the centers with the greatest projection who currently plays for River Plate, but who had to withdraw from the Copa América due to heart sequelae derived from his condition with covid-19, stands out in the defensive zone.
