Discussion of Chile 10-1 Tahiti on 14th February 1973
I haven't yet found any more games of Tahiti....
The Chile team doesn't seem very strong, but it is difficult to tell for South American teams between World Cups - they always tried new players, and played few full internationals. Chile changed coaches in early March 1973.
Chile also planned a tour to Central America in March which was to include games in Nicaragua, Honduras, Haiti, Guatemala, and Mexico. I presume this was cancelled after the change of coach. They did visit Haiti and Mexico in April.
Many sources list a match 21/4/73 Mexico 1-1 Chile, but I found no evidence of this in "El Informador", or any other newspaper yet. The closest game I found was 19/4/73 San Luis de Potosi 1-1 Chile. But this certainly can't be a full international. Indeed Pedro Araya (Chilean) played for San Luis in the 1st half, for Chile in the 2nd half.
[Can I humbly suggest moving this Chile - Tahiti discussion to its own thread]
