    Background: SANTIAGO, CHILE/SAO PAULO, BRAZIL

    England ended their three-nation tour of South America with a disappointing, goalless draw against Chile on June 17. England played strongly, bearing down aggressively to shoot time and again, but were foiled by brilliant saves from Roberto Rojas in the Chilean goal. Rojas began by deflecting a shot by Wilkins, and went on to keep out a glancing header from Allen, a drive by Barnes, another attempt by Wilkins, as well as a shot from Robson before Barnes tried again. However, this was not the sort of play the 10,000 crowd had come to see. Drawn by England's earlier spectacular win against Brazil, the Chilean fans ended up by whistling their disapproval. The game was the first warm-up for the Chilean Olympic side.

    Brazil was playing Argentina on the same day in an exhibition match in Sao Paulo - this too ended in a 0-0 draw and boos from fans. Brazil had hoped to regain their fortunes after losing to England. Both teams were inexperienced, as many players from their 1982 World Cup line-ups have joined European clubs. In the first half, each had difficulty breaking down the other's defences, and both teams made numerous fouls. The only near-goal came in the 26th minute from a shot by Brazilian midfielder Vladimir, but the referee disallowed it. Play got rougher towards the end of the game, and Brazilian forward Renato and Argentine midfielder Garee were both sent off.
