The AS Monaco central defender was selected with La Roja for two new crucial matches at the end of January, as part of the South American qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup.
Believe in it until the end! Abused at the start of the South American qualifying campaign for the next 2022 World Cup, Chile has returned to the race in recent months. So much so that the compatriots of Guillermo Maripán could indeed take an option at the end of January, with two very important meetings against Argentina and Bolivia.
🇨🇱💯 THE NAME OF #LaRoja 🔜⚽

A summit against the winner of the Copa America
Two meetings for “El Memo” were obviously selected by Martín Lasarte. Framework of La Roja (37 caps, 2 goals), the central defender of AS Monaco will therefore challenge the Argentina of Lucas Ocampos and Angel Di Maria, winner of the Copa America last summer, next Friday January 28 at the ‘Estadio Zorros del Desierto in Calama (1h15). Then Bolivia, four days later at the Olympic Stadium Hernando Siles in La Paz (Tuesday February 1 at 9 p.m.).
We will play two decisive matches (against Argentina and Bolivia, January 28 and February 1), which will define whether or not we go to the World Cup. We are aware of this issue and of our responsibility. Personally, competing in the World Cup with my country has always been a dream, it’s what I’ve always wanted and that’s why I’ve been playing football since I was little.
Before the game against Clermont
Victorious in three of their last four games in the race for this 2022 World Cup, Chile is currently 6th with 16 points, just one unit from the barrage place. That’s all we wish for Guillermo, who recently signaled his dream of playing in a World Cup for his country. Memo Vamos!
Siempre is an orgullo defender in the middle of the country 🇨🇱💪🏼 https://t.co/nuVmxCS66n
