Chile and Venezuela will fight for a place in the 2023 Women’s World Cup

Armenia (Colombia), 23 July (EFE). Chile and Venezuela will meet for a place in the 2023 World Cup playoffs in Australia and New Zealand in a fifth-place match at the Copa America Femenina in Colombia this Sunday. , which will be played at the Centenario Stadium in the city of Armenia, Colombia.

La Rosa and La Vinotinto came into this match after losing 4–0 to Colombia and 0–1 to Argentina respectively on the final day of the group stage, with both teams finishing third in their region.

For Venezuelan coach, Italian Pamela Conti, elimination is already behind in the group stage and “this is yet another final against Chile”, in which they will seek a playoff that will bring them closer to their first Women’s World Cup. .

Along these lines, the duel against La Rosa would be an opportunity for La Vinotinto to improve his goal in front of goal, something that cost him dearly and which, Conti even said, he should improve.

The coach relies on the work of two of his forwards: Dena Castellanos and Oriana Altuve to turn the page and it is expected that he will be supported by midfielders Raderlin Vargas and Yesoura Viso, who have shown good footing in the tournament.

However, doubts will lie in the center of the field where Conti hasn’t got a definitive eleven, which is why Dayana Rodriguez and Gabriella García—converted midfielders—could appear, as well as Lourdes Moreno and Sonia O’Neill.

Chile, for their part, are vulnerable to a defeat inflicted by Colombia and will try to repair the image they had saved in the previous games to reach the World Cup playoffs, as the dream of the people led by José Antonio Letelier go. This is the second World Cup. world continuously.

The biggest doubt for Chile’s team will be Francesca Lara, who missed the duel with Colombia due to Kovid-19. It is also not clear whether players Daniela Pardo and Javiera Toro, who have recovered from ailments that have pulled out of the duel with the hosts, can play this match.

“Venezuela have historically been an important team,” said Letelier, whose consistency is in doubt due to poor results and he did not hide his trouble for not fighting directly for World Cup qualification.

Despite the casualties, Chile will have on-field goalkeeper Christian Endler as well as striker Daniela Zamora, defender Carla Guerrero and midfielder Karen Araya, who are part of the backbone with which the team has played the tournament.
