Chile squad for COPA America 2024: Who’s in and Who’s out, Key Players and Predicted Line-Up

What you can expect from Chile in Copa America 2024?

Chile are gearing up for Copa America 2024 with high hopes as they are aiming for their third continental title while La Roja fans are eager to see their team perform in the USA.

Chile have always been a powerhouse in Copa America. They won as hosts in 2015 and also lifted the trophy in the USA last time while they have also reached the knockout stage six times in a row.

Ricardo Gareca will be acting as the head coach for Chile this year as the Argentine has a strong track record. The Argentinian led Peru to a third-place finish in 2015 and was runners-up in 2019.

Chile will face tough competition as they are in a group with Argentina, Peru, and Canada. The team had their final preparatory match against Paraguay on June 11 which they comfortably won by 3-0. The former Copa winners announced a 55-man provisional squad on May 5, 2024.

La Roja fans hope their team will sizzle and not fizzle. With their strong history, they just might go all the way. Let’s see if they can cook up another victory in the USA!

Chile’s Copa America 2024 squad looks strong and promising. Let’s break it down.
