Bielsa won't consider permutations

Chile coach Marcelo Bielsa does not even want to contemplate the prospect of bowing out of the FIFA World Cup™ finals at the first hurdle with six points.

The South Americans sit proudly at the top of Group H, three points clear of both European champions Spain and Switzerland heading into their final first-round match.

However, with the Spaniards awaiting them in Pretoria on Friday while the Swiss face pointless Honduras in Bloemfontein, there is a very real possibility that Chile could find themselves heading home if they do not pick up at least a draw.

The story is too old to be commented.
