Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella has praised his ruthless strikers after seeing his side overcome Chile in World Cup qualifying action.

The 2-1 victory on Tuesday, courtesy of goals from Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain, keeps Sabella’s side top of the South American standings heading into the next round of fixtures next March.

And Sabella believes they find themselves in this position because of the firepower he has at his disposal.

“We have forwards of huge standing who normally never forgive mistakes,” Sabella told reporters.

“We knew Chile would take the ball from us a lot and we had to be very concentrated in defence.”

The defeat leaves Chile languishing in the bottom half of the qualifying table with 12 points from nine games.

Sabella insists it is too early to write Claudio Borghi’s men off, however.

“(The Chile team) have excellent players to reach the World Cup, they just can’t be classified yet, as some of their players are injured and/or punished,” he said.

Argentina’s next game is an international friendly against Saudi Arabia in November.
