Chile: Having failed to progress from the group phase of the World Cup on five occasions, Chile have only reached the Round of 16 twice. The South American nation will want to improve the record, and are touted as the side that can dent either Spain or Netherland’s hopes of winning another World Cup trophy.
Australia: Having never gone beyond the Round of 16, the Socceroos wish to impress at the big stage and perhaps cause an upset or two. Lowly Australia are in the same group as Netherlands, Spain and a very powerful Chile squad. Tim Cahill and Mark Bresciano are the only two experienced players in the squad who will want to show just what they are all about.
