SANTIAGO.- Marcelo Bielsa has already convened a training session for the Chilean national soccer team in Japan, and rumor has it that the national tournament striker Esteban Efraín Paredes could play as center-forward during the first match of the Kirin Cup against Japan this Wednesday at 6:35 AM Chilean time.

According to Radio Cooperativa, Coach Bielsa led the practice with a focus on the offensive sector of the team and paid special attention to Paredes as a main point of attack along with forwards Fabián Orellana (right) and Jean Beausejour (left).

The team's winger was Jorge Valdivia, who spoke quite a bit with Paredes to fine tune movements with the offense players of the national team.

Bielsa's squadron is training at the J-Village Complex in Hirono with a very demanding regimen that included physical training yesterday directed by Luis Bonini and tactical work directed by Eduardo Berizzo.

Authorities belonging to the Federation of Japanese Football issued a press release confirming that the Kirin Cup match will be held under strict health measures that will include the use of facemasks for all attendees.
