Chile v Australia – World Cup preview

Watch the World Cup Group B match live on ITV from 10.35pm on Friday 13 June

Chile v Australia (Group B) 10.35pm ITV (kick-off 11pm)


Chile’s direct attacking style should win plenty of admirers in Brazil this year. They start their tough group campaign against Australia tonight in the Arena Pantanal, Cuiaba.

ITV’s Andy Townsend says to watch out for Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez, already known to England fans following his two goals in Wembley in November last year. “Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez could be the one everyone ends up talking about,” he says. “Chile are a fast, direct and exciting team to watch. If they get out of the group, nobody will want to play them in the knockout stages.”
