The whole world heard about this motivational movie before the World Cup
The year is 2014. The Chilean national team went into a group that some have called the “Group of Death”. They had to fight the Netherlands, Spain and Australia to advance to the next stage of the tournament. Prior to the tournament, a team motivational video was recorded by a group of Chilean miners. In 2010, they survived 69 days trapped in a San Jose mine. They told the players that there is no “death group” for those who have already defeated death.
“We had been trapped in the same place for 70 days. We were swallowed up by the earth. It was the right moment to prove what we were made of. We knew that millions of Chileans out there believed in us – and this country was witness to it all.” – said one of the miners, Mario Sepúlveda. Then he began to fill the container with sand and added: – For this we take land from this country to Brazil. And to our training facility the acting. To fill it with hope and courage. He showed the world that nothing is impossible for Chile.
– The Spaniards are strong? Dutch strong? We are not afraid of group death. We don’t care about death. We are death. “We’ve already won,” he said, raising his voice. The entire video was created by a Chilean bank,
Motivation worked. The Chileans unexpectedly left the group, sending contemporaries home Champions World, Spaniards. In the 1/8 finals, the Chileans were about to make a splash. They played extra time against the Brazilians, and Mauricio Pinilla eventually hit the crossbar. Later, this shot was tattooed with the caption, “One inch of glory.” Chile was eliminated on penalties.
