    I must say keep up the good work. Chilean football is really something, quick, passionate and exciting. The only problem is that we can’t find many video’s on youtube with all wekends action or copa chile. Is there any sort of aggrement with CDF and youtube? Keep up the good work🙂

    Thanks for your kind words. As for there being very little YouTube footage of Chilean it appears CDF is pretty strict on what appears and quite often pulls videos down. They did have their own channel for a while but stopped updating it with videos. It’s extremely frustrating to say the least.
