The players can’t believe it: they gave everything on the pitch but their coach had already made up his mind.
If for a player it is a honor wearing that shirt is above all an act of great responsibility for a coach. Leading a country towards ever greater sporting feats entails enormous pressures which, once disregarded, lead to waves of criticism.
This could partly be the reason for the choice of the coach. An analysis perhaps superficial but which contains the insecurities of those who should be an example and encourage them to never give up.
The players can’t believe it but they know that now a lot will depend on them. When a technician leaves, it is the group that is particularly observed. Everyone will have to come up with something more to arrive prepared for the next commitment (in a handful of days, ed.) and believe in the dream.
The country is wondering about these resignations but is trying to look forward. In the past, in fact, they have arrived two bitter disappointments (in 2018 and 2022, ed.) which cannot become relevant again right now. It is too important to prepare as best as possible for the next match and win the three points up for grabs.
The coach said enough
It didn’t all happen after a defeat but rather following a lackluster scoreless score. Against the Paraguay The Chile he wasn’t able to do better and now the road to the next World Cup is getting complicated.
The person responsible for this bitter evening is above all the coach, Eduardo Berizzo, who anticipated everyone in the press conference by confessing his choice. Now it will be up to the more experienced players, waiting for the new coach, to drag the group towards unexplored goals.

Official resignation, now it’s his turn
“I just spoke to the president and expressed my desire to leave office. The results were not as expected and we need to know how to recognize them. I want to thank everyone who worked with me and the players who committed themselves to this journey. The chances of qualifying for the World Cup exist and are intact.” With these words, in the press conference, former coach Berizzo effectively bid farewell to the country.
Now it’s up to Nicolas Cordova San Cristobal, technical manager of the youth teams, will lead the Chilean national team on an interim basis as early as Tuesday 21 November against Ecuador. The Football Federation relies on a personality who already knows the movement and hopes to be able to experience a different day after the disappointment against Paraguay.
