Red lights flashing for Chile

La Albirroja and La Roja are also facing uncertain times, with every step forward being followed by two steps back, a frustrating lack of consistency that has left both sides in uncomfortable positions.


Chile’s woes are the more perplexing of the FIFA 17 Coins. Since winning their second consecutive Copa America title in the USA this year, they have gone three games without a win and 243 minutes without scoring a goal, an unusual state of affairs for a squad featuring the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Eduardo Vargas.


Their latest outing ended in a comprehensive defeat at the hands of Ecuador. “We can still qualify, but we can’t afford to repeat the mistakes of the last few games,” said Roja coach Juan Antonio Pizzi, who still has plenty of goodwill following his side’s Copa America Centenario triumph.


Even Ecuador, one of the few sides who have kept faith with their coach since the start of the campaign, have enjoyed highs and lows. After kicking off in impressive fashion with four straight wins, La Tri took just one point out of a possible 12 before getting back on course with that victory over Chile.


Neither Peru nor Bolivia – despite the shake-up the latter has experienced under Guillermo Hoyos – have managed to embark on a sustained run that would give them renewed hope, while Venezuela have lost ground on everyone. Not even the arrival of respected former international Rafael Dudamel in the dugout has raised hopes of an immediate change in fortunes, though his enterprising approach could pay dividends in the future.
