Chile boss Bielsa targeting qualification

Chile national team coach Marcelo Bielsa is now eyeing qualification for the Round of 16 after he guided his side to a 1-0 win over Switzerland on Monday.

The South Americans now have six points from their two matches and sit atop of the Group H table but face Spain in their final match and can still mathematically miss out depending on the result of the Switzerland versus Honduras match but Bielsa was solely focusing on getting to the next phase.

"I just hope that these six points can be the basis for qualification," he said.

"This, of course, is the immediate objective we have."
