Group B

11th June: vs. Italy (2:2) in Bordeaux.

17th June: vs. Austria (1:1) in St. Etienne.

23rd June: vs. Cameroon (1:1) in Nantes.

Chile received the most yellow cards in the first round, and must be disappointed that star strikers Salas and Zamorano didn't score more goals.

Knockout Stage

2nd Round
27th June: vs. Brazil (1:4) in Paris.

Salas scored a consolation goal against Brazil, in the second round, but they were not hot enough to beat the World Cup Champions.
