Eduardo Berizzo continues to try to transmit his way of playing to the Reds. After taking over the position left by Martín Lasarte after the South American Qualifiers, the Argentine dedicated himself to trying new players, making changes in positions and even rotating goalkeepers with the future in mind. . So far, however, not all of his decisions have worked out.
In the tour that the Red made in Asia, it only accumulates defeats. The first fall was against South Korea, who are still preparing for their World Cup presentation in Qatar and had their best numbers.
Now the 2-0 loss to Tunisia in the Kirin Cup leaves Berizzo with a lousy stat. This is because the DT matched what Jorge Garcés achieved on his way through everyone’s team. There, after taking office in 2001, recorded a defeat against Brazil by 2-0 and against Colombia by 3-1 in their first two meetings. Indeed, if in the definition for the third place which will be played in the first hours of Tuesday, against Ghana (which fell in Japan) it is beaten again, it will be able to extend its statistical failure, since would tie Pedro García with three consecutive falls in the same number of duels. In his minute, García, who took over from Nelson Acosta, fell against Honduras (3-1), Peru (3-1) and Mexico (1-0).
The defeat for the Kirin Cup began to be defined at the end of the first half, despite the fact that at the start the national team suffered a series of dangerous arrivals at the feet of Ben Brereton. The Chilean striker, at minute 26, had the chance to open the account, but his shot did not have enough power to beat the African goalkeeper.
Then, another opportunity presented itself, but goalkeeper Aymen Dahmen was once again attentive to avoid the Chilean party. And shortly after, Joaquín Montecinos ended up sending a bad rejection from the Tunisian defense on the goal. In the 1940s came the first conquest of Tunisia. Mohamed Drager was a good second to Ali Abdi who, with a header, broke the resistance of Zacarías López.
In the add-on, Ronnie Fernández had the chance to score with a header after a good cross from Eugenio Mena, but the ball went over the horizontal. At the end of the match, La Roja suffered again. In the 85th minute, Issam Jebali scored but after VAR review a previous offside was determined so it was waived. Although that turned out to be just a warning, because at minute 89 Jebali himself scored it 2-0 with a volley.
Chile had the chance to cut extra time from the penalty spot after a Ferjani Sassi handball. Diego Valencia got in front of the ball and shot low to the left. At the same time came the goalkeeper who avoided the discount.
With this now Chile will have to fight for third place next Tuesday. He will face the Black Stars, beaten 4-1 against the locals.
La Roja don’t want to leave Japan empty-handed and honor will be at stake. thinking about the next challenges ahead.
