From the magnificent capital Santiago to the earthquake-hit land of Concepcion, anyone who shared with VnExpress reporters expressed strong belief in the home team's victory in the round of 16 of the 2014 World Cup.

However, that fact does not make Chile fans lose confidence before the first match of the round of 16, taking place at 11pm (Hanoi time).

Sharing with VnExpress reporters, 26-year-old Claudia Viviana affirmed that the Chilean team will win 2-1.

The match was on a Saturday, so Claudia and her friends had gathered since morning, cooking traditional Chilean dishes such as Pastel de choclo (corn cakes), Cazuela (meat stew), and Empanadas (a cake similar to dumplings
