Watch Chile vs. Ecuador live stream free in the Copa America 2015 opening match of the 44th edition of the regional tournament.
There are several interesting things to watch out for as far as fans are concerned. First of, Lionel Messi will try hard to vindicate himself from the heartbreaking World Cup loss Argentina suffered at the hands of Germany. As one of the top South American players and after clinching The Treble, Messi is most definitely one to keep an eye on.
Likewise, Brazil is also looking for vindication from the less than stellar performance in front of their own fans last summer. The villain, Germany, handed the five-time World Cup champs one of their most humiliating losses ever and now they are ready to prove what they’re really made of.
If you watch Chile vs. Brazil live stream, you will see if Chile can deliver in front of their fans and see why everyone is so excited about the national team. Ever since coach Jorge Sampaoli took over in 2012, things have been looking up for Chile.
Sampaoli introduced a new style with increased tempo on the pitch, which pushes up the defense of the opposition. This has made Chile a force to be reckoned with and earned them respect from their rivals and admiration from fans at the World Cup.
Even though Chile has not done well recently — with three defeats in their last five matches — Sampaoli’s team is one of the favorites to reach the final rounds. Alexis Sanches, Arturo Vidal, Gary Medel, and Claudio Bravo are ready to battle after ending successful campaigns in their respective clubs.
Fans who watch Chile vs. Ecuador live stream free will see whether Ecuador can play on the same footing as the host in the Copa America opening match. After Head coach Reinaldo Rueda was fired following the poor performance at the World Cup, coach Gustavo Quinteros has a difficult road ahead, if recent appearances in the tournament are any indication.
La Tri has not won a match since they defeated Venezuela 4-0 in 2001. Even though they earned a draw against France in the World Cup, Ecuador was eliminated in the first round. Unfortunately, the news that Antonio Valencia is not available to join the team because of a recent surgery doesn’t sound promising. Enner Valencia and Jefferson Montero should help Quinteros somewhat.
