Chile get first win since 1962

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - World Cup -

HOn­dURAS ........................ 0 CHIle ................................. 1 JEAN Beause­jour se­cured Chile’s first World Cup win since 1962 as they made an im­pres­sive tour­na­ment en­trance.

Beause­jour re­warded coach Marcelo Bielsa for his at­tack­ing ap­proach by claim­ing the only goal af­ter 34 min­utes of an en­ter­tain­ing Group H en­counter at Nelspruit’s strik­ing Mbombela Sta­dium.

With Alexis Sanchez a con­stant threat, Chile should have won more con­vinc­ingly with a num­ber of chances squan­dered, par­tic­u­larly in the sec­ond half.

Waldo Ponce had the best of them when he headed straight at Noel Val­ladares from point­blank range.
