    IF the CA started today, what would your team's lineup look like? Which 23 would probably be called up?

    From Chile's perspective, I would assume the starting XI would remain the same if not very similar to what everyone saw at the WC:. In other words, Chile would look like this: C. Bravo; G. Medel, G. Jara, W. Ponce; M. Isla (der.), C. Carmona, A. Vidal (izq.); M. Fdez.; A. Sánchez, H. Suazo, J. Beausejour.

    As for the 23 that Bielsa would probably take, it would probably be very similar to the squad that travelled to South Africa though I would think P. Contreras and R. Tello will probably not be considered (both on the wrong side of 30).

    Let's hear it about your guys' teams!
