Lopsided Chile win masks major issues for ageing 'golden generation'

To watch the 2019 Copa America, sign up for ESPN+.

Defending champions Chile got off to what looked like a flying start in defence of their title. But a study of the game, rather than just the 4-0 scoreline over Japan, is rather less comfortable for Chile coach Reinaldo Rueda, who at times looked like a worried man on the touchline.

Japan and Trinidad and Tobago are both in tournament action this summer.

Trinidad and Tobago held a tired-looking Japan to a 0-0 draw during an uninspiring friendly at Toyota Stadium in Aichi on Wednesday.

Japan have played 15 games since the World Cup, having reached the finals of the Asian Games and Asian Cup, and Hajime Moriyasu's men looked fatigued, failing to break down Trinidad and Tobago, ranked 67 places below them.

- When is the CONCACAF Gold Cup?
