29/05/09 - EMOL (Chile)

SANTIAGO.- The Chilean national soccer team has left much to speculation regarding their upcoming World Cup qualifying matches after a 1-1 tie today against Belgium at their last match at the Kirin Cup in Japan. At the event, which was the team's last game before they face Paraguay and Bolivia, Marcelo Bielsa's players once again failed to close out the match and was plagued by defensive errors. The outcome has led to some concern since several of the players that were placed as starters today are also scheduled to take the field against Paraguay. The scoreboard was marked first by the Belgians with a goal by Kevin Roelandts at the 15 minute mark. Later, the game was tied when Universidad Católica player Gary Medel scored a point for Chile.

23/12/08 - EMOL (Chile)

LONDON.- Copper closed with a 2.06% drop today at the London Metal Exchange after trading for US$ 1.29297 per pound compared to US$ 1.32018 on Monday of this week and US$ 1.28185 on Friday of last week, which was its lowest value in more than four years. The price of the metal plummeted due to a lack of investor confidence in the lower-than-expected interest rate cut in China, while demand woes continue to surge on the somber economic forecasts. China slashed interest rates yesterday in the nation's most recent attempt to avoid the growing economic slow-down. The reduction however, which is the fifth since September, was less than many analysts had predicted. Adding to concerns with regards to the metal, the International Association for Copper Studies has indicated that worldwide refined copper surplus increased by 67% during the January-September time period after the...

To see international photos, click here SANTIAGO.- Wasting a great opportunity to cement a position in the Shanghai Masters, Fernando González (ATP Nº11) fell to Czech player Tomas Berdych (ATP Nª27) by a monumental 6-0 and 6-4 at the Tokyo ATP Tournament (Japan, 860 thousand dollars, cement). The loss has kept him from moving through to the tournament semifinals, and even worse, he was unable to accumulate the points necessary to enter the top ten player list of the "ATP Champions Race". The main problem was González' serve. He made transcendental mistakes that finally cost him the match, especially during the first set. The La Reina native lost his serve three times in a row, offering Berdych a 6-0 set on a silver platter. Berdych will go on to face U.S. player Andy Roddick (ATP Nª8) in the next round. To make matters worse, Argentine player Juan Martín del Potro (ATP...
