Suazo dropped for Ukraine friendly
Humerto Suazo has been left out of Marcelo Bielsa's Chile squad to face Ukraine in a friendly on 7 September, while 26-year-old Palermo forward Mauricio Pinilla has been drafted in after four years in the international wilderness.
Pinilla has yet to feature under Bielsa but wins a call-up after some impressive performances in Serie A last season.
However, there is no room for Monterrey's Suazo for the meeting in Kiev, despite his 10 goals in the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ qualifiers.
Suazo only played briefly in this summer's finals in South Africa after two months out through injury and could not prevent a sixth straight loss to Brazil in the Round of 16.
