CHILE FOOTBALL HISTORY

The Chile national football team represents Chile in all major international football competitions. The team is controlled by the Federación de Fútbol de Chile which was established in 1895. They have appeared in eight World Cup tournaments and were hosts of the 1962 FIFA World Cup where finished in third place, the highest position the country has ever achieved in the World Cup. They qualified for the 2014 FIFA World Cup on 15 October 2013 with a win against Ecuador. Since the mid to late 1960s, the Elo ratings ranks Chile among the 25 strongest football teams in the world.

Despite never winning a trophy, the team is known for its consistency; having earned a top 4 result in 19 editions of the Copa America and coming as close as runners up 4 times.

The Federación de Fútbol de Chile is the second oldest South American federation, having been founded in Valparaíso on June 19, 1895.

Chile is one of the four founding member nations of CONMEBOL. Together with Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay, the four competed in the first South American Championship, later to be renamed the Copa América, in 1916. On October 12, 1926, Chile made the first corner-kick goal in Copa América history in a match against Bolivia. Chile is the only one out of the founding members never to have won the tournament.

Chile was one of the thirteen national teams that competed in the inaugural World Cup in 1930. The team started off well, beating Mexico and France without conceding a goal. A 3–1 loss to Argentina in the final game left the Chilean team in second place within the group, eliminating it from the tournament. In the 1950 World Cup, Chile defeated the United States, 5–2, but nevertheless was eliminated in the first round.

The best Chilean result in the World Cup was third place in 1962, as the host nation. Chile lost 4–2 to eventual champion Brazil in a semi-final but went on to defeat Yugoslavia 1–0 to earn third place. Chilean players made two World Cup firsts: the first player to miss a World Cup penalty kick was the Chilean Guillermo Subiabre, in a 1930 FIFA World Cup match against France, and Carlos Caszely of Chile became the first player to be sent off with a red card, during a match against West Germany at the 1974 World Cup.
