Chile to face Jamaica, Mexico in Copa America warm-ups

Football Federation of Chile (FFCH) have revealed that the national team will face Jamaica and Mexico in final friendly games ahead of the 2016 Copa America Centenario.

La Roja will first lock horns with Jamaica on May 27, with the venue set to be announced on the coming days.

They will then test their skills against the Mexico national team on June 1, some five days before their opening clash against Argentina.

Chile will also be vying Bolivia and Panama for a place in the knockout stages, with the 2015 Copa America finalists obviously the favourites to go through.

Having suffered back to back defeats to Uruguay and Argentina in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, La Roja will be eager to make amends by defeating Venezuela on the road.

Coach Juan Antonio Pizzi will have key midfielder Arturo Vidal back from suspension, whereas Felipe Gutierrez and Francisco Silva will start in midfield following injuries to Mati Fernandez and Marcelo Diaz.
