Chile coach Jorge Sampaoli named the national side’s 23-player World Cup squad. Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal who isn’t fit as he’s recovering from a right knee surgery has still been named.

Vidal underwent a keyhole operation on a meniscus problem two weeks ago, originally prompting fears he could miss Chile’s trip to the 2014 finals in Brazil.

The South Americans are drawn in Group B with defending champions Spain, Holland and Australia.
