Valdivia's Chile comeback sidelined through injury

SANTIAGO (Reuters) - Chile midfielder Jorge Valdivia's hopes of returning from a 10-match suspension for indiscipline in this month's World Cup qualifiers have been dashed by injury. Valdivia, suspended by former coach Claudio Borghi in October 2011, was recalled last week by new coach Jorge Sampaoli for matches away at Peru on March 22 and at home against Uruguay four days later.
