With less than a week to go before the main event kicks off in Brazil, Chile’s World Cup team have landed in Belo Horizonte.

Jorge Sampaoli’s attacking style has made this squad very entertaining during the last South American qualifiers, and this World Cup sees La Roja with arguably the best generation fans can remember.

Although Chile struggled at times in World Cup qualification, many believe they have a great chance of reaching the latter stages of the tournament, with supporters relying heavily on Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal.

Chile, who entered the top 15 in FIFA’s rankings in October 2013 and have stayed there since, have been drawn in to Group B where they will face holders Spain, along with the Netherlands and Australia.
