[World Cup] Key Player Review: Chile – Arturo Vidal

In a way, Arturo Vidal is the best footballer in the world. Not the actual best footballer—that’s Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo—but the best all-rounder.

Vidal is tremendously energetic; he can play in defence, midfield or attack. He’s fast, strong, good in the air; he can pass intelligently, is a feisty tackler and scores goals. Often, he does all these things in the same game.

Chile are the most attack-minded side at this tournament and Vidal’s dynamism will be crucial.

Whether fielded as the No. 10, his best position in this side, or in a slightly deeper role, he epitomises the energetic, high-energy, heavy-pressing style Jorge Sampaoli orders.
