Chile Under-17 World Cup appearances

Japan 1993

The 1993 FIFA U-17 World Championship was held in Japan from 21 August to 4 September in the Japanese cities of Tokyo, Hiroshima, Kyoto, Kobe, Nagoya and Gifu.

This was to be Chile's first presentation on the U-17 international tournament stage. Attainment occurred by finishing in second place at the 1993 South American Under-17 Football Championship, behind Colombia and ahead of Argentina.

Of the four groups in the tournament, Chile were located in Group D which contained Poland, Tunisia and China. The group games were held in the city of Hiroshima and on 22 August, Chile faced China, the winners of the AFC U-16 Championship. The game ended in a 2–2 draw. On 24 August, Chile played against Tunisia, where Chile came away victorious by a score of 2–0. The third match was to be a highly contested match-up against Poland, and a battle for first place within Group D would ensue. The match ended 3–3 with Chile qualifying in second place with a total of 4 points.

In the quarterfinals, Chile's opponent was the former country of Czechoslovakia on 29 August in Kyoto. Chile went on to defeat Czechoslovakia 4–1 gaining a spot in the semifinals.

On 1 September, the semifinals featured Chile vs. Ghana. The speed, counterattacking and strength of the African players defeated the Chilean squad. The match ended 3–0 and relegated Chile towards the consolation prize of the tournament, which was third place.

The third place position reunited Chile with Poland, where after another battle, Chile would go on to tie Poland with a penalty kick from Sebastian Rozental during the closing minutes of the match, after Chile were down most of the game with an own goal against them. Chile ultimately won the penalty kick shootout (4)-(2) and gained a third-place finish.[1][2]
