Chile fume at Brazil ´helicopter spies´
Chile boss Jorge Sampaoli was reportedly furious after a helicopter from a Brazilian television channel spied on his team´s training.
With just a couple of days to go before la Roja meet Brazil in the last 16 of the World Cup, former Universidad de Chile manager Sampaoli wants to keep his plans for the knockout match against the hosts up his sleeve.
That was why Chile were up in arms when Sport TV, the sports channel of newspaper O Globo, flew for almost two minutes over the training session at the Toca da Raposa II sports complex in Belo Horizonte while the players were warming up.
Sampaoli continued with the team´s preparations, but Chile are understood to have reacted by banning a Sport TV journalist from one of their press conferences. Apparently, the Brazilians have also promised not to use the images.
