Massive blow to Chile as influential midfielder Martinez is suspended for Ghana clash

By Ameenu Shardow

Chile will be without influential midfielder Sabastian Martinez when they face Ghana in the quarter finals of the U20 World Cup on Sunday.

The 20-year-old misses out through suspension after securing two yellow cards on the bounce in games against Iraq and Croatia.

This serves as massive blow to Mario Salas? side as he faces the ever improving Black Satellites without one of the most reliable players.

Martinez?s importance stems from the fact that he has played in every single game of Chile?s campaign at the World Cup in Turkey.

This will therefore be welcome news to the Ghana camp as it eases the tactical burden on coach Sellas Tetteh ahead of Sunday?s crucial game in Istanbul.

Ghana looks to continue its march in the tournament as the only surviving African side in the competition.
