Cardiff midfielder Medel, who often plays as one of three centre-backs for his country, is included in manager Jorge Sampaoli's defensive options alongside Nottingham Forest's Jara.

Wigan midfielder Beausejour, who suffered Championship play-off heartache in the semi-final defeat by QPR, is one of 12 midfielders selected.

Juventus star Arturo Vidal has been named in the squad despite facing a race against time to prove his fitness after undergoing knee surgery last week.

Chile open their Group B campaign against Australia on June 13 and then face World Cup holders Spain and the 2010 beaten finalists Holland.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
