Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi hopes Charles Aranguiz will be fit for tomorrow's Confederations Cup semi-final against Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal after the midfield enforcer suffered a knock against Australia.

"He was in a bit of pain and we hope he will be able to recover, but like his teammates he is strong, he wants to play," said Pizzi.

If fit, Aranguiz faces a busy night at the Kazan Arena trying to ensure Ronaldo has a quiet night with the Real Madrid star having won man-of-the-match awards in all three of Portugal's games so far in Russia.
