The coach criticized the Blackburn striker, who responds on the court to the strategist’s words.
The new goal card of the Chilean team is the forward Ben Brereton Diaz, who was key in the victory against Paraguay in San Carlos de Apoquindo, as he scored with a shoe after a pass from Mauricio Isla.
Since his debut in La Roja, when he played 13 minutes in the tie against Argentina in the Copa América, he showed his desire, which has helped him to be much loved by the fans.
However, the man from Blackburn Rovers has received criticism, such as Rafael Olarra or Marco Antonio Figueroa, the latter being very harsh, because he even treated him as a “trunk”.
“Now Ben Brereton is the ‘Bam Bam’, but he is a trunk. The great sin we have committed has been not to give confidence to young players. Ignacio Jeraldino is a player with many conditions, but he has played little and has never been taken into account because he does not play, however, they do not do it since the coach does not put them on, ”said the Phantom before the double date.
But Brereton Díaz responded on the field, and in fact, he already doubles the scoring record of Figueroa in his time at La Roja, because with the goal against Paraguay he added two conquests, because it was added to the one he did to Bolivia in the Copa América.
Marco Antonio Figueroa had the opportunity to play in seven games for the national team, the same number as Ben, but scored only one goal, against Bolivia in a friendly in La Paz. In addition, he appeared in only two official matches, in the 1993 Copa América.
Criticism for Ben Brereton will continue, but the Chilean-English striker wants to continue showing on the court that he is the new striker of the national team for a reason.
