Match Report

Austria 0,Chile 3

Chile rebounded from an opening day loss against Belarus with a 3-0 victory against Austria. The loss leaves Austria winless in its first two outings.

Chile’s Daniela Caram set the tone early, firing in a field goal just five minutes into the game. But Austria regrouped and competed well through the rest of the half, keeping Chile scoreless and going into the break down by just one.

Chile again had a quick start in the second half when Denise Infante struck in the 2-0 goal just over a minute in the half. But just like in the first half, Austria again buckled down and played solid defense to keep the lead from growing. Unfortunately for the Austrians, the focus on defense also kept them from threatening the Chilean net.

Infante killed any hopes of an Austrian comeback when she added her second goal of the game with just seven minutes left to bring the final score to 3-0.

29th-ranked Austria entered the tournament as the lowest seeded team, so today’s result against 17th-ranked Chile, seeded third here in Japan, is a moral victory. Meanwhile, this is the second outing for Chile with a result that didn’t live up to expectations. As the competition gets tougher, Chile will need to bring more to the game if it wants a place in the London.

Both teams are off tomorrow and will return to action with tough tests. Chile will face tournament leader and host Japan, while Austria takes on second-seeded and undefeated Azerbaijan.
