Brazil are right to fear Chile, says Arturo Vidal

Scolari has warned of a match-up against Chile

Without getting ahead before the tournament has even begun, there are a few mouth-watering prospects that lie in wait in terms of potential quarter finals at this summer's World Cup.

England v Colombia?

France v Argentina?

Germany v Belgium?

Of all these permutations, none would get the juices flowing more than Brazil v Spain, which would happen should one team finish first in their group and the other second. However, Brazil boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has carefully mentioned another team that could wreck the hosts' World Cup and that is South American neighbours Chile.

With Netherlands also in Group B, Brazil are almost certain to face a tricky second round match and Chile's Arturo Vidal suggests that Scolari is accurate in his trepidation: "I agree with Scolari, I think Chile has a good team, Brazil has reason to fear us because we are the surprise of the World Cup."

The two teams played a friendly in Toronto in November and Brazil managed a 2-1 win.
