World Cup 2014

Arturo Vidal and Mauricio Isla make final Chile World Cup Squad

June 2, 2014 - 12:50 pm

On Sunday, Chile coach Jorge Sampaoli named his final 23 man roster for the World Cup, which featured two Juventus players: Mauricio Isla and Arturo Vidal. Neither are very surprising inclusions, although Vidal’s status had been in question following recent meniscus surgery.

Isla, who played 76 minutes versus Egypt on Friday, has been a regular member of the Chile squad recently, despite his rocky form with Juventus. Meanwhile Vidal, though officially in the squad, has still not fully recovered from the surgery. While he will almost surely at least make a few appearances in the group stage, depending on how quickly he recovers and how far Chile go, he may not see too much time in Brazil.
