    Chile at a personal level means life and blood to me and when it particularly comes to football, it boils.

    Despite being Australian-born, I’ve been raised and educated in the port city of Valparaiso and as that also means being nurtured in the streets and football fields, the world game is certainly a way of life. Having played for two seasons at both youth reserve and First division side Santiago Wanderers, I have a thorough knowledge of the local game as well which is predominantly contested between giants Colo-Colo, Universidad Catolica and Universidad de Chile.

    I have had opportunities to also spend time with Chilean National Football squads when they have toured friendly matches both here in Australia and New Zealand, World Cup qualifying home matches in Santiago and the memorable Sydney 2000 Olympic Games bronze medal performance as well. Studying two years of journalism over there has also enabled me to get involved in the fiercely competitive sports journalism industry which of course is covered on a daily basis about the round-ball game.

    Now that I have come across this World Cup Blog, it is essential I feel for Chile to have a space to communicate as the more than one million expats living overseas find especially over the internet, a close source of contact to locate fellow compatriots and football enthusiasts where national pride is poured all over with the illusion of qualifying on the world stage which this time around takes places in South Africa.

    It has not been an easy ride with the South American round-robin system which locks every nation in the one group, the powerhouses are evident in Brazil and Argentina and the rest battle it out for the remaining two-and-half places, obviously all avoiding that dreaded fifth place for the Oceania repechage.

    I read all football newspapers from Chile and keep myself up-to-date with all that is happening in the footballing country that has the highest average attendance record in the South American qualification process. In addition, now that former Argentine national coach Marcelo Bielsa has been signed to make way for a new era after yet another demise at the Copa America successfully held in Venezuela, it is time to leave disappointments behind and move forward, which I believe this Blog should be no different and join the footballing world where our beautiful game is arguably and undoubtedly best played in, South America.

    My warm regards,
    Daniel Campos

    I share your sentiments Daniel,and i think our players don’t know just how important the National team is to us.Probably why they put in below par performances some times and take us to breaking point.
    My team Nigeria put our hearts in our mouths during football matches,and i just hope that they will play very well at the nations cup starting in Ghana in just days.
