Chile boss Sampaoli: England attack will make life difficult for us

Chile national team manager Jorge Sampaoli admits he is a big fan of England's attacking line.

The Three Lions host La Roja at Wembley in a friendly on Friday night and Sampaoli is expecting a tough contest, particularly due to the fact that Roy Hodgson's squad possesses some quality forwards.

"When you've got (Danny) Welbeck fit and with the likes of (Wayne) Rooney and (Daniel) Sturridge, they create lots of problems and can make life very complicated for opposition defenders," he said.

"They're a good side with a good chance (at the World Cup). What they've got to do is make sure they create enough of a goal threat to cement those good chances.

"They are a team that will get stronger during a tournament. They will get better and better as they progress."
