Martín Lasarte made public the list of those mentioned in the Chilean team for the triple date of October, with the surprise that no player from Colo Colo, current leader of the tournament, had his place on the payroll.
One who seemed like a number placed in everyone’s team was Leonardo Gil, who without a doubt has been one of the best reinforcements that could reach our football this season, being the soul in the midfield of Gustavo Quinteros’ team.
Cristián Basaure felt it that way and in his capacity as Commentator on RedGol in La Clave I affirm that “I love Pablito Galdames, but he is not having continuity in Italy. Erick Thumb unquestionable. Jean Meneses is a player with all the confidence of Lasarte and he has delivered. But between Valdés and Galdames there is the possibility that Leo Gil should have been given ”.
“It is not for the gallery, I have been saying it for a long time, I think he more than earned it. It has differentiating elements. Why Gil? He can play inside, even as a link, behind the attackers. He has a goal from a set ball, a question that Chile does not have and the closest is Alexis Sánchez “added the former soccer player.
To strengthen his argument, the commentator concluded that “Arturo Vidal tries, but it is not his great virtue, shot from outside distance, yes, the goal he made against Peru, is the scorer in the Qualifiers. But Leo Gil can give a differentiating element in standing ball that it seems to me that perhaps he was asking for him to be nominated now and it is a surprise that he is not there ”.
The next triple date of the Qualifiers will have the Roja playing Lima against Peru on Thursday, October 7 from 10:00 p.m., while at home he will play in San Carlos de Apoquindo with Paraguay (Sunday 10 at 9:00 p.m.) and with Venezuela (Thursday 14 21:00).
