England 0 Chile 2

Man­chester United´s Way­ne Roo­ney failed to find the back of the net as Eng­land lost by 2-0 at ho­me to Chile. The So­uth Amer­ic­ans went in­to an early 1-0 lead as of­fens­ive ori­ented San­tos wing back Eu­genio Mena fou­nd Bar­celona goal poach­er Alex­is San­chez who ma­naged to head the ball pa­st Celt­ic and Eng­land cus­todi­an Fraser For­ster and in­to the bot­tom cor­ner of the net in the sev­enth min­ute of the friendly fix­ture. Af­ter 20 min­utes, Frank Lam­pard, who was England’s cap­tain in place of the in­jured Ste­ven Ger­rard, came clo­se to scor­ing wi­th a spec­tac­u­lar long ran­ge free-kick, but the mid­field play­maker saw his power­ful ef­fort su­perbly saved by Chile shot stop­per Clau­dio Bravo. As the ga­me pro­gressed, San­chez ev­entually pro­duced his sec­ond goal of the tie dur­ing stop­page time to make the fi­nal sco­reline 2-0 in the fa­vour of Jorge Sam­paoli´s Chile.
