Chile faces Thailand and math to reach eighth in France | Women's World


After a tough world championship against two giants, Sweden (0-2) and the United States (0-3), Chile will finally be able to show their game against Thailand, this Thursday in Rennes (15:00 in Chile), on a final day of the group stage in which he clings to mathematics to dream about the eighth.

Red does not have it easy. Already 13 of the 16 eighths were distributed, two of the four classified for the best third, the only way for the group of José Letelier.

"The results were logical, but you always expect them to be better. We keep hope until the math says otherwise," the coach said.

"The way we attacked the United States and Sweden was different, now we have to go with everything, I look forward to being able to score, contribute and succeed"

In a F-key in which the United States and Sweden have already reached the pass – they will play for the first place – Thailand's classification would require a greater miracle, since the goal difference is -17.

"We go to the three points yes or yes"

"We're going to look for the three points, yes or no. We have great options to finish well, we had a very difficult group," said Christiane Endler, the Chilean figure in the first two games, in which she was shown with stops of all colors without enter the game. the mathematical variants.

Before two female football giants, the team led by Letelier defended well in many phases, but failed to show offensive game.

"The way to attack the United States and Sweden was different, now we have to go with everything, I'm anxious to score, contribute and be able to win," said striker Maria Jose Urrutia, with an unpleasant task before the Swedes and Americans.
