Well it was very generous of Chile's Nelson Acosta to let Salas stay for an extraday and add to that play and be in bad condition for Chile's game. He understood Salas and decided to be generous! Now Salas has a minor injurie 3 days before the vital world cup qualifier against none other than the best team in the world Argenina Without Salas the hopes of something from this match have evaporated! Also missing Tello Maybe I will cheer up if we win lo scudetto by 1 point


This is terrible for Chile will Tello suspended and Bam Bam doubtful! All that can save us now is if the players can find the will in their hearts!


BTW Salas played a magnifisent game scoring Lazios only goal and being man of the match! The goal was even better since Salas seems to be a midfieder more than an attacker now.....

What?Is this for sure?In the Lazio-Juventus game when he replaced at '87 i didn't think that it was a serious injury and that he will play vs Argentina but...
We are SO unlucky not to have matador in this game.

But he will be tested so there are some hopes to have him for this so omportant game.

PS-Ivan Zamorano played in ALL Chile's matches but Marcelo Salas in 6/9.(his punishment in July was very unfair).

Its not a serious injurie SaZA but after everygame players must have 1-2 games off! Add to this Salas got a minor injurie. He then has to travel to Chile and only has 3 days before the big game. He might still play!



BTW some good news He has flown to Chile and Crespo has not, even tho Crespo isn't a starter!

Bad news Veron flew 2

Salas confirmed today in a statement that he'll be able to start. Let's see if this is the case and if Acosta confirms his inclusion in the starting eleven.

The pressure in such a situation is tremendous! They will use him.

Both Zamorano and Salas will start for Chile this wednesday. Zamorano says he feels fine and Salas said he's 80% fit. This is Acosta's last chance if Chile doesn't win.

FACT- Chile has only beaten Argentina 4 times in history since the 30s.

The future doesn't look too braight for Chile but...

FACT- Chile had never beaten Brazil in WC qualifiers UNTIL they beat them a few months ago.

Brazil showed up with a lot of subs for that game and we all know what happened. Now, Argentina will play with a lot of subs, so the question is, can Chile pull 2 major upsets in 1 year?


PS - I think it will be a draw, meaning the end of Acosta's reign.

Hurrah for Paquador!

Well after it looked like we would have no strikers, we have SaZa and the Argies don't have Bati, Crespo or Lopez they do have very big depth tho

Salas said he will play despite the swelling on his left leg.

About the fact that Chile won only 4 times Argentina the captain Ivan Zamorano said:"We have 90 minutes to change the history and we will try for this".

It is very good that we will have both Zamorano and Salas.

Argentina maybe start with Juan Roman Riqulme and Javier Saviola in the offense.Martin Palermo is also included in the roster.

...and something else.Chile would be proud if Peru could take something from Paraguay(ok,this is a bit difficult but hope).But the news are that 3 of the most important Peuvians didn't get a call(Solano,Zuninga,Pizzaro).Why?They are not in form or what?
