Bravo, Real Betis goalkeeper, at 38, is the oldest in the squad. Vidal and Sanchez, both from Inter Milan, are 34 and 32 years old respectively. Medel, from Bologna, Italy, is 34 years old.

The other representative players are Mauricio Isla (33), Eduardo Vargas (31) and Charles Aranjuez (32), the latter of which was released before the double date began due to calf discomfort.

In this context, DT Ecuador values ​​those of the “golden generation”. “They have the baggage, the travel and the hierarchy. They know how to play a tie. When things get tense, the value of the experience works and pays a lot.”

One knows that the added value that Chile has is the generation of players who have won important things such as the Copa America and participation in the World Cup. The operations from Marcelo Bielsa have been good,” insisted Alvaro, who in the event of obtaining A draw could put Ecuador one step closer to the World Cup in Qatar. (Dr)
