Barcelona superstar Alexis Sanchez is normally extremely impressive for Chile, and the Australian defenders will be readying themselves for a tough evening against the South American dark horses.

Marcelo Bielsa’s Chile side are known for their exciting attacking football with Arturo Vidal in the pivotal no.10 role, although they’ll almost certainly need a win tonight if they want to qualify from the group – with Spain and Holland also yet to come.

Australian manager Ange Postecoglou has selected a young squad – but will be relying on former Premier League star Tim Cahill to spearhead the side.

Juventus man Vidal can expect a tough battle with Crystal Palace captain Mile Jedinak, although the Socceroos will struggle to stifle the fluid Chileans.

A single win for the Postecoglu’s men, or even a draw would probably be regarded as an achievement. Their players, despite a lack of top level experience, will work extremely hard as well.
