  THE TAPESCRIPT

This is Chile's first World Cup Finals since France 1998. That is too long for a top team like Chile to be not playing top-level football. It’ll be so good to see our players against the top teams again. I’m so looking forward to the game against Spain. They have a great team and I’m sure we’ll give them a good test. We could even cause an upset and beat them. I don’t think we’ll have too much trouble beating Honduras and Switzerland, which means we’ll get to the second round. That’s where the fun starts because all the teams are good. We have some great strikers who are sure to get lots of goals. The world needs to look out for Matias Fernandez, Alexis Sanchez and Humberto Suazo. They will be names to remember.
