FOCUS ON: MARCELO SALAS
The World Cup isn’t just about Brazil, or the rest of the big guns, and their multi-million pound football stars. Sometimes its about the lesser lights – the types of clubs who glimpse the limelight just once every 30 years or so, when somehow a generation comes together and makes the magic happen.
One of the key members for the Chile national side, certainyl up until 2005, was the Lazio and Inter world-beater Marcelo Salas. Had he had a few higher quality team-mates other than Ivan Zamorano) Chile could have had a fantastic chance of making it into thte knockout stages – after all they managed to beat England!
