It may be hard/impossible to remember the last time England put on an exciting display, but at least their friendly opponents on Friday know how to entertain. Jorge Sampaoli's Chile had a shaky start to their World Cup qualifying campaign, though now haven't lost since March. In that time they've played nine matches and scored 25 goals, despite coming up against the likes of Brazil, Spain, Colombia and Uruguay.
Playing with a great emphasis on attacking and pressing, they will undoubtedly give Roy Hodgson's Three Lions a run for their money on Friday, despite England having not lost at all this year. It's the first meeting between these sides since 1998 -- on that occasion, it was La Roja who emerged victorious.
England will be without Steven Gerrard, Danny Welbeck, Michael Carrick and Kyle Walker through injury, while Fraser Forster will likely make his first international start in place of Joe Hart. Chile will be without their star midfielder Arturo Vidal, who has been rather conveniently ruled out for the next week with an
international football thigh problem.
