The goalkeeper of Real Betis Claudio Bravo has played the full match with the national team chili, which this past dawn has won 0-1 to Paraguay in the clash played in Assumption, thus adding his third consecutive victory and recovering options to qualify for the Qatar World Cup, something that seemed a chimera just a few weeks ago after the bad start of the Chilean team in the qualifying tournament of the CONMEBOL.
“We were practically out. If we did not get the victory today we were out, so we went out to look for the result on a Paraguay very hard and difficult. We always start from behind, through the centrals, outside and through the center. We leave with the tremendous satisfaction of having triumphed in a very difficult redoubt “, he commented Claudio Bravo after the match, decided with an own goal by the Paraguayan goalkeeper Antony silva at 56 ‘.
The triumph of chili, third in a row after those signed a month ago against Paraguay (3-0) and Venezuela (2-0), leaves the team led by Martin Lasarte in the fourth position of the standings after playing 13 games, since in the first ten they only achieved one victory, at home against Peru. After yesterday’s game, Chile will play at home on Wednesday against Ecuador in commitment corresponding to the 14th day of the qualifying phase. At the end of January he receives Argentina and at the beginning of February he visits Bolivia. Their last two qualifying matches will be in March, visiting Brazil and hosting Uruguay, so their move to the World Cup still requires several more victories against difficult opponents.
