Chile keeper Borquez targets senior team berth

Chile goalkeeper Julio Junior Borquez wants to use the Fifa U-17 World Cup platform to prove a point and be in the reckoning for senior team call-up.

Borquez was voted best keeper at the South American U-17 Championship in March, when Chile booked their place at the Fifa U-17 World Cup.

I want to make this opportunity count and try and break into the senior national team. It’s a dream, Borquez told reporters after Chile had their first practice sessions under floodlights here on Monday evening.

Chile have been drawn in Group F alongside England, Iraq and Mexico. They will play their matches at the revamped Salt Lake Stadium.

We are all looking forward to the tournament. We have pressure but we are a good team and everyday I have been preparing to get better for this meet, Borquez.
