Villanueva back in Chile squad

Chile coach Marcelo Bielsa has included Blackburn Rovers midfielder Carlos Villanueva in his 13-man foreign-based squad for the match against Spain next weekend.

Villanueva, who has been called up because of an injury to Mark Gonzalez, returns to the national set-up after missing the World Cup qualifiers against Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Argentina.

Udinese's Mauricio Isla is also in the party eight months after vowing never to play for Chile again as long as Bielsa remained as coach.

The midfielder had claimed he was unhappy with the way Bielsa had treated him after a friendly defeat to Israel.

Besiktas midfielder Rodrigo Tello, meanwhile, will be hoping to make his first start under Bielsa after making the Argentinian's squad for a second time.

Bielsa is expected to add seven or eight home-based players to the squad on Saturday.

Chile squad: Claudio Bravo (Real Sociedad); Pablo Contreras (PAOK Salonika), Ismael Fuentes (Jaguares), Waldo Ponce (Velez Sarsfield); Carlos Carmona (Reggina), Matias Fernandez (Villarreal), Mauricio Isla (Udinese), Pedro Morales (Dinamo Zagreb), Rodrigo Tello (Besiktas), Jorge Valdivia (Al Ain), Carlos Villanueva (Blackburn); Alexis Sanchez (Udinese), Humberto Suazo (Monterrey).
