Chile-Argentina clash ends in draw

Santiago, Chile:

Chile held Argentina to a goalless draw in a fast, furious and full-blooded South American World Cup qualifier on Wednesday.Argentina's new coach Jose Pekerman, who fielded an unchanged team, went into the match in buoyant mood after his side's 4-2 win over Uruguay. But Chile surprised their opponents by taking the initiative. Goalkeeper Roberto Abbondanzieri saved Argentina from a shock defeat with several good stops as his teammates were knocked out of their stride by hard-working and sometimes over-physical opponents. The top four teams qualify for Germany while the fifth plays off against the Oceania region winners. (AP)
