SANTIAGO, Chile -- Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez and Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal headlined Chile's preliminary squad of 30 players for the World Cup on Tuesday.

Coach Jorge Sampaoli resisted naming any major surprises in the list published Tuesday at the site of Chile's football association.

Chile is pinning its hopes on the recovery of Vidal. He underwent knee surgery last Wednesday, just five weeks before his country's first match at the World Cup.

Chile has one of the strongest teams in its history but faces a tough challenge in Brazil. It plays its first match on June 13 against Australia, then faces reigning world and European champion Spain and the Netherlands in Group B.
