Chile recently drew 2-2 with Spain and were 3-0 up against Colombia, so a trip to Wembley would have held little fear for them.

In contrast, England have generally laboured under Roy Hodgson, and the number of withdrawals from the squad was indicative of how seriously this friendly was being taken.

In Alexis Sanchez, Chile also had by far the most vibrant attacker on display, and his two goals proved too good for Hodgson's men.
