What is Ireland’s record against Chile like?

Ireland have won six of their nine meetings with Chile’s only win coming in a shared series match in Santiago three years ago. There have been two draws between the sides.

Where can I watch the match?

There was plenty of criticism regarding the lack of planned domestic TV coverage of the tournament but this game will be shown live on RTE News Now with coverage starting at 1.00pm Irish time. It will also be covered on and BT Sport 1 and streamed on the RTE Player and BT Sport app.

What are the odds?

Ireland are favourites at 4/11 with Chile 9/2 and the draw priced at 7/2.

What the latest from the camp?

The tournament began last weekend with a 5-1 defeat to hosts and current world champions Holland so Tuesday's game is must-win for the girls in green. Chile impressed on their debut despite a 4-1 defeat to Germany.

Captain Róisín Upton says their opponents “are where we were four years ago at a first major tournament. They will take a lot from their opening game against Germany as well, do their homework on us.

“There isn’t too much footage out there on them so we will see what we can work out from them and then focus on ourselves and the little things we can learn from.”
