Claudio Bravo

Bravo has been the undisputed number 1 for Chile since 2007 and still holds that position to this day. The keeper has won 130 caps for the national team and is their captain.

The 37-year-old is now playing for Real Betis in La Liga and when he first won the Copa America, he was in midst of his spell at Barcelona, but the signing for Marc-Andre Ter Stegen meant the Chilean had to move on. He would then join Manchester City only to be moved to second choice behind Ederson. His four-season spell in Manchester would end in 2020 where he would head to Spain once again.

Francisco Silva

The centre-back retired from international football in 2018 having won 37 caps in a career that spanned 11 years. Playing a key role in the back-to-back Copa America wins.

The 35-year-old is now plying his trade back in Chile with his boyhood club Universidad Catolica. Since the Copa America win, Silva has spent time in Mexico with Chiapas and Cruz Azul before a brief spell in Argentina saw him play for Independiente.

Marcelo Diaz

The 34-year-old retired in 2017 after making 61 appearances for the national team. Diaz started all Chile’s games in the 2015 Copa America and was ultimately named in the team of the tournament for his performances.

The midfielder spent a brief period in Europe before the tournament playing for Basel and Hamburg before a move to Celta Vigo. Diaz would then move to Pumas in Mexico in 2017 ending his period in Europe. He is still playing to this day for Racing Club in Argentina.

Gary Medel

The former Cardiff player is still a key part of the Chile national team starting at centre-back for them in their recent game against Argentina. Like that of Diaz, Medel played a large role in Chile’s triumph and would ultimately be named in the Team of the Tournament.

After his brief spell with Cardiff, Medel would move to Inter Milan where he would spend three years before moving to Besiktas. Medel would spend two years in Istanbul before moving to Bologna where he plays today.

Mauricio Isla

Another stalwart of the Chile team is still playing for the national team, also starting at right-back in their recent draw with Argentina. Isla is Chile’s fourth most capped player in history as he currently sits on 121 caps for the national squad. Isla is currently playing for Flamengo in Brazil where he has been since 2020.

Arturo Vidal

One of the standouts in this generation of Chilean players, Vidal is the fifth most capped player of all time on 120 caps for Chile. Vidal was vital in Chile’s run to the final, scoring in the opening game against Ecuador and later being named in the Team of the Tournament. However, it was not without its controversy as Vidal would crash his Ferrari in between Chile’s group stage games.

Vidal’s club career has been filled with success. Before the Copa America, he spent four years in Juventus where he won the Serie A every season and he's now at Inter Milan where he's just won yet another league title.

Charles Aranguiz

Another stalwart of the Chilean squad, Aranguiz formed a partnership with Arturo Vidal in the centre of the Chile midfield which has been unbroken since 2015. The midfielder was a key piece in Jorge Sampaoli’s system as he allowed Vidal to push further forward.

Aranguiz’s performances in the 2015 Copa America earned him a move to Bayer Leverkusen in Germany where he has been playing since, making 115 appearances for Die Werkself.

Jean Beausejour

Although Beausejour has not retired from international football, the 37-year-old has not been called up to the current Copa America squad. The left-back is seventh on the list for most capped players for Chile and was starting left-back in the final.

Beausejour will be familiar to fans of Birmingham City and Wigan as he spent brief spells there before returning to Chile. Since his return to his homeland, he has had spells at Colo-Colo, Universidad de Chile and currently plays for Coquimbo Unido in the second division.

Jorge Valdivia

Valdivia retired from international football in 2017 after winning 78 caps for the Chilean national team, but he will be remembered for his role in the run-up for the final where he was key in every game but would ultimately be subbed off in the final.

Valdivia has experienced somewhat of a journeyman career moving between the UAE and South America. At the end of the Copa America, the midfielder would join Al Wahda for two years before returning to Chile with Colo Colo. He has since bounced between Morelia and Mazatlan in Mexico before a return to Colo-Colo.

Eduardo Vargas

Still a starter for Chile, Vargas was the top scorer in the 2015 Copa America outshining the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal.

His performances in front of goal would see him end up in the team of the tournament. Vargas' goals have also seen him move into second on the all-time list of top goal scorers for Chile on 39 behind Sanchez.

Before the tournament, Vargas had a brief spell on loan at QPR but was unable to light up Loftus Road. He would then move to Hoffenheim in Germany, where he lacked any sort of impact before spells at Tigres in Mexico and Atletico Mineiro in Brazil.

Vargas has so far been unable to match his goalscoring exploits with Chile at club level.

Alexis Sanchez

The poster boy of the Chile team, Sanchez still plays a key role for the national team, so much so that he is both the most capped player and the top goal scorer for Chile. Sanchez would score the winning penalty for Chile against Argentina in the final but would not make the Team of the Tournament.

Before the tournament, Sanchez spent three years at Barcelona before moving to Arsenal. He would spend four years in north London, scoring 60 goals in 122 games and being one of the best players to have graced the Gunners in recent years.

Sanchez would then move onto Manchester United where he would struggle to replicate his form and would ultimately be cast aside. This would see the attacker return to Italy and join Inter Milan where he has shown glimpses of his quality since.
