Chile squad announced for friendly against Ecuador

Claudio Borghi today (Wednesday August 1) announced his squad for Chile’s friendly with Ecuador which takes place in New York on 15 August.

The friendly with their South American rivals is the warm-up match for the three World Cup qualifying matches that take place in September and October.

Marcelo Díaz, Junior Fernándes and Matías Fernández have all been left out due to moving clubs while Ángelo Henríquez has not been included as he is currently away with the Chilean under-20 side who are touring Europe in preparation for qualifying for the World Cup in Turkey next year.

There is a recall for Universidad Católica Fernando Meneses while Palermo’s Carlos Labrín and Santiago Wanderers’ Agustín Parra are both called into the full squad. Huachipato’s César Cortés is a surprise addition.

Thanks to some crafty work by those at the ANFP the squad can be seen in this handy graphic:
