A 4-0 win over New Zealand on Saturday saw Portugal safely into the semi-finals.

Lying in their way is a Chile side that finished second in group B, booking a place in the semi-final with a hard-fought 1-1 draw with Australia on Sunday.

Despite some unconvincing performances from the South American champions so far, Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi has said that his team “won’t make it easy” for the European champions and has vowed Chile will “compete and try to beat them [Portugal]”.
