Amongst all the star names of Chile's squad, they also have a considerable amount of depth, Harry Hesp takes a look at one of their lesser known talents.
Chile coach Jorge Sampaoli has got his side playing some of the most attractive football on the international stage and with talents like Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal - they have the ability to outscore and out pass any opposition in Brazil.
Whilst Sanchez, Vidal and Jorge Valdivia will be touted as Chile's star players - one man, Fabian Orellana, is waiting in the wings to seize his chance on the biggest stage.
The Celta Vigo winger won his first cap in 2007 but failed to make an impact until the following year, when he scored the winner against fierce rivals Argentina in qualifying for the World Cup in South Africa.
His tidy finish from inside the box saw him become a national hero overnight and he was duly dubbed 'El Historico' (The historic one) - although, now he is most commonly known as 'El Poeta' for his uncanny resemblance to a Chilean comedy character of the same name.
Orellana had to wait another year to score his next goal for Chile, but again it was an important one as he sealed victory against Colombia in a 4-2 win to seal a spot at the 2010 World Cup - but he featured little in South Africa.
A handful of excellent individual performances meant his career looked like taking off a number of times but, such is his inconsistency, this World Cup could be the final chance for the 28-year-old to show if he can perform on the biggest stage of all.
Pacy and agile, the tricky winger has shown flashes of brilliance but those moments have come far too infrequently to ever really establish himself at the highest level.
His slight frame means he gets knocked off the ball with relative ease and his stop-start form has replicated his career.
A failed spell at Udinese drew no appearances for the Italian club, instead with the winger being loaned to Spain and after helping Granada return to La Liga for the first time in 35 years, the Andalucian club snapped him up.
Again the move didn't really work out for the Chilean who now finds himself at Celta Vigo after signing a deal last year, again after an impressive loan spell.
However, this season has been another frustrating one for the winger, Celta coach Luis Enrique has given him a limited role and he even fell out of favour with Chile boss Sampaoli.
But a recent spell in the team has returned four goals including a couple of pin-point free-kicks and calls from the Chilean press has seen him return to the international fold.
Orellana will be behind Barcelona's Sanchez and Eduardo Vargas when Sampaoli picks his starting XI, but he could be effective from the bench and he only needs one flash of brilliance down the touchline or a chance from a set-piece to get the nation chanting 'El Historico' again.
