Angelo Henriquez admits surprise at Chilean call up

by Sam Peoples

Angelo Henriquez received an unexpected call up to the Chilean senior national squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Ecuador and Argentina this week.

The 18-year-old, who is yet to make his senior debut for Manchester United, admits that it is something he didn’t expect.

Speaking to Radio ADN, he said: “Unfortunately, we have important players injured. 

“That has worked in my favour and I hope to play. Otherwise, I will continue to work the same way to have another call-up. It’s not what I expected – I was ready to play with the U20s.

“I have been working very hard and intensively in England. Mentally, it is a huge motivation to come and play for the Chilean national team.”
