The convocation of Ben brereton by Chile selection He had been talking since 2020, after the nationalization process that began in his native England, but he only had his official participation in June 2021, being a substitute in the Qatar 2022 Qualifiers and then he was adding minutes in the America’s Cup.
Until that point in his career, the 22-year-old forward had not garnered great statistics as a scorer, although everything changed since he put on the ‘Red’. After that participation in the national team competition in South America, the attacker returned to his club, Blackburn Rovers, and enlisted for the start of the England Championship.
The 2021-22 season of the English second division tournament started and Ben Brereton showed all his qualities in the area, breaking each of the personal records he had previously established (he had celebrated seven times in his best course). So far, in 24 dates that he played (23 as a starter), the Chilean has scored 20 goals and is the second top scorer in the tournament (Aleksandar Mitrovic leads with 22 goals).
The impressive number even exceeds all the celebrations he had had throughout the previous eight seasons he played at the league level, between Nottingham Forest and Blackburn (adding the U23 team): he only registered 19 touchdowns.
In addition, the great individual performance that the scorer has had helped his club have a chance of moving up to the Premier League. Currently, Blackburn is third with 45 points, on worst goal difference with Fulham, and would make the playoffs for promotion, but is only one unit behind leaders Bournemouth, who have a direct berth to the first division.
In the Chilean national team they are the happiest for the great performance of Ben Brereton, since it will be important for the closing of the Qatar 2022 Qualifiers. The ‘Red’ seeks to return to a World Cup and English is emerging as a fixed piece for the next double date of Qualifiers between January and February (they host Argentina and visit Bolivia).
