World Cup: Argentina coach Sabella does not believe in ‘ghosts’


Chile, like Paraguay, are in danger of failing to reach the finals in Brazil next year and a second successive World Cup after having fallen to a fourth consecutive defeat away to Peru on Friday.

Their new Argentine coach Jorge Sampaoli will be looking to end the rot in Santiago against a fourth-placed Uruguay side held 1-1 at home by Paraguay and deprived through suspension of defender Maxi Pereira and holding midfielder Diego Perez.

The top four teams at the end of the qualifiers will go to Brazil. The fifth-placed team, at present Venezuela, will enter a playoff against an Asian qualifier for another berth.
