The Venezuelan soccer coach, the Portuguese José Peseiro, affirmed this Monday, November 16, that his team will seek to be more offensive against Chile, without losing the defensive stability shown against Brazil, to try to win on the fourth day of the South American qualifiers for Qatar 2022.

In a press conference prior to the game that will be played on Tuesday, November 17, the Portuguese coach said that he expects “a more offensive, more aggressive game” from his team that places his players “closer to the goal to score goals and to win”.

Venezuela counts its three games played in the qualifying rounds as defeats: 3-0 against Colombia; 0-1 with Paraguay; and 1-0 in Brazil.

As Peseiro explained, in the match against Chile, Venezuela’s black beast, it is important that the defensive line be “more aggressive” and play more advanced.

Chile has beaten Vinotinto 11 times in the South American qualifiers. As a local, Venezuela accumulates six defeats and a draw with La Roja.

Regarding full-backs Rolf Feltscher and Roberto Rosales, who left the court due to injury in the duel against the Brazilians last Friday, Peseiro said they “have doubts” about whether they will be able to play but did not rule them out completely.

Venezuela will not have its captain, the Italian Torino midfielder Tomás Rincón, due to the accumulation of yellow cards.

For his part, forward Salomón Rondón said that “it is very important to win at home”, so that will be “the only objective” that will be set against Chile.

“I have always said, and I am totally convinced, that qualifying for the World Cup involves ensuring respect for the locality and that happens by keeping the 3 points (against Chile) at all costs,” said the footballer who dreams of Vinotinto playing his first world cup in Qatar 2022.

Rondón considered that they played a good game against Brazil, they gave “a good face” although they were finally defeated, and they will try to repeat it on Tuesday against Chile, although they will seek “to attack and create chances.”

In this sense, he assured that the players that make up the Venezuelan team “are going through a good time” with their clubs and hopes that this performance will also be transmitted in the selection.

Finally, he assured that the work of the group is to “try to reverse the situation” and begin against Chile, in what is “a final”, to straighten the way for the World Cup.
