Sweden vs Chile Soccer Prediction Today
What was expected to be a controversy on the eve of the World Cup did not materialize. Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, considered to be the greatest player in Swedish football history, had dropped out of the squad after the Euro 2016 competition. However, with the qualification guaranteed for the World Cup, he was expected to go back on that decision and start pleading a place on the team.
This was not seen by good eyes by the coaching staff or the players, according to the news, but Ibra’s media power could cause turbulence. However, after suffering a series of injuries in the knee and not being able to return to playing at a high level in Manchester United, the awaited problem happened.
The Chilean national team begins a new cycle this Saturday aiming at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The failure to reach a place in Russia cost the job of Argentine coach Juan Pizzi. For his place was called the Colombian Reinaldo Rueda, who broke a two-year contract with Flamengo to promote the renewal of the Chilean national team.
It began by showing boldness by including three athletes under 20 in the main squad. For the friendlies against Sweden and, next, Denmark, he summoned the defender Diego Cayupil, of 19 years, of Deportes Temuco; midfielder Matias Sepulveda, 18, from O’Higgins; and striker David Henriquez, 19, of the Catholic University. This helped lower the age group of 24 athletes called by the coach to 22 years.
