Regarded as one of Chile's most important players, between 1969 and 1985, Caszely won 49 caps and scored 29 goals for the Chile national team, including participations in the 1974 and 1982 World Cups.

Career

Cazsely played for several football teams in his career, including Colo-Colo (1968-1973), Levante UD (1973 -1974), RCD Espanyol (1974-1978), finally returning to Colo-Colo (1974-1978).

During a 1974 FIFA World Cup match against West Germany, Caszely was controversially sanctioned with a red card by the match referee, becoming the first player to receive this kind of sanction which included being expelled from the match. Red and yellow cards had already been introduced in the past World Cup (1970).

Today he works as a host for several sport related TV shows in Canal 13, a Chilean based TV station and plays football at amateur level for a team called "Colo-Colo 1973", composed of former Colo-Colo players.
