The technical director of Blackburn Rovers, Tony Mowbray, assured that there are talks for the Chilean team to allow Ben Brereton Díaz to participate in one last game in English football before joining the team that will face Argentina and Bolivia for the Qatar 2022 South American Qualifiers .
England’s Blackburn Rovers coach Tony Mowbray has once again become a stopping stone for Ben Brereton Díaz’s presence on the Chilean national team. And at what moment: just before La Roja meet Argentina and Bolivia in key duels for the South American Qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The situation is generated from the television programming of English football, which postponed the game of the Rovers against Middlesbrough for the Championship League to Monday, January 24, that is, only three days before the visit of the Albiceleste to Calama ( 27) for the fifteenth date of the qualifiers.
The idea of the Rovers coach is that Big Ben could be in the commitment of the British ascent
“I have spoken with Ben about it, those conversations are still ongoing and I would not like to anticipate what could happen in the end,” Mowbray conceded in his last appearance before the press, expressing a particular management by the forward.
“We know that he has to go and that he is going to go, but it all depends on the day he leaves,” underlined the strategist who has Blackburn Rovers in third place in the second category of English football and as a candidate for the expected promotion to the Premier League.
Chile will face the Argentine national team on January 27 in Calama, while four days later it will visit Bolivia at the auction of the South American qualifiers, which deliver four direct tickets to the World Cup and a fifth via the repechage.
What about Brereton and Calama
The problem with Blackburn Rovers’ request is that the delay in the release of Ben Brereton could cause counter-times in the forward’s preparation for the match against Argentina at 2,300 meters above sea level, a situation that the striker has never experienced.
From a distance, the Chilean team has begun to work with the striker in hyperbaric chambers, so that Big Ben can homologate the conditions he will encounter in Calama. However, the dates are not on your side.
If he plays English football on January 24, Brereton could only join the Chilean team in Calama on the afternoon of January 25, so he would hardly have one or two training sessions before the meeting with Argentina.
Remember that you can watch the matches of the South American Qualifiers live and live via streaming on Redgol. You only need a device with a fixed internet connection or Wi-Fi, in Chilean territory, to follow the road to Qatar 2022 with the best image and sound quality.
