SANTIAGO, May 5 (Reuters) - An earthquake shook Chile's 2-0
win over Trinidad & Tobago in a World Cup warm-up on Wednesday.
Officials did not halt play, however, despite a strong
tremor - measuring 6.4 and centred in southern Peru - being
felt by the crowd of around 10,000 at the stadium in the
northern Chilean city of Iquique.
Chile was hit badly by an earthquake in February when
hundreds of people were killed. Friendlies arranged for early
March had to be cancelled.
New cap Sebastian Toro proved to be the Chilean revelation
of the match, and may well have played himself into coach
Marcelo Bielsa's World Cup plans.
Bielsa fielded a team made up almost entirely of home-based
Twenty-year-old Colo Colo central defender Toro, sound at
the back and impressive going forward, crowned a strong
individual showing with Chile's second goal three minutes into
the second half.
Bielsa's side had taken the lead virtually from the kickoff
when midfielder Pedro Morales scored from the edge of the box
in the opening minute.
