Borghi names squad for Ghana friendly

Claudio Borghi has named a twenty-one man squad for Chile’s upcoming friendly against Ghana which is to be held on the 29th February in the United States.

With regulars such as Mauricio Isla, Paolo Contreras and Waldo Ponce all out with injury this friendly gives a chance to some new faces to push their case for a regular starting, especially in the heart of defence. Luis Casanova from O’Higgins and Lucas Domínguez from Audax Italiano join an all South American-based defence including Universidad de Chile pair Osvaldo González and José Rojas and former La U defender Marco González, who is now with Flamengo.

Following on from their impressive form in last year’s Clausura and Copa Sudamericana tournaments the Universidad de Chile trio of Marcelo Díaz, Eugenio Mena and Charles Aránguiz all get another cool up whilst some good early season form has seen Colo Colo’s Rodrigo Millar also make the squad along with with teammate José Pedro Fuenzalida. Matías Campos Toro is the other locally based midfielder to be picked alongside the regulars in the form of Medel, Fernández and Jorquera. As for the forwards, there are no real surprises here with Junior Fernandes and Esteban Paredes being the only Chilean based inclusions.
