Martín Lasarte does not rule out the option of using Arturo Vidal as a forward

A very important match will be the one that the Chilean team will have against Colombia on Thursday at the Metropolitan Stadium of Barranquilla, within the framework of the tenth day of the qualifying rounds for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

In the preview of this meeting, Martín Lasarte faced the microphones in a press conference and affirmed that Arturo Vidal can be the in charge of replacing the dismissal of Eduardo Vargas due to the accumulation of yellow cards.

About this, Machete argued that “Arturo played at some point in Barcelona as a false“ 9 ”and he did it in several games. Arturo is Chile’s top scorer, that’s a reality too. In addition, its characteristics make it very versatile “.

“He can even play in positions that seem very strange to us and do it surely with quality and talent, which abounds. It is a possibility (use it from 9) “added the Red strategist.




Later, he commented that “Now we have several more forwards, because there is Iván Morales, Luis Jiménez, Diego Valencia, who can be a center forward and who can be called to the possibility of starting”.

Furthermore, Lasarte pointed out that “If I didn’t have the conviction that we will go to the World Cup, I would not have come. We played a great game with Brazil and we didn’t win. Against Ecuador not so well and we got a point. We are optimistic. An important result would give us a confidence that we are not having, especially in the face of goal “.

The Chilean team will be measured against its simile from Colombia this Thursday, September 9 at 8:00 p.m. at the Metropolitan Stadium of Barranquilla, on the 10th date of the qualifying rounds for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
