STOKE-BORN striker Ben Brereton has incredibly starred in a Chilean Pepsi advert just one month after making his debut for the South American national team.
The 22-year-old Blackburn striker, who qualified to represent Chile through his mother, switched between languages during the advert despite not actually being able to speak any Spanish.
Brereton stunned fans by showing up in the Pepsi commercial
He only began playing for the South American side in June
But he has already become a fan-favourite with the Chile fans
He can be seen drinking Pepsi in various different scenarios and shows off the No22 shirt he wears for Chile.
During the ad he is also holding a newspaper with the word ‘Ben-xit’ on it, referring to his decision to ditch England in order to play for the Chilean team.
Such is his commitment to Chile, he recently decided to be named Benjamin Anthony Brereton Díaz.
This is because Spanish names use both their mother’s and father’s maiden names.
Brereton represented England at Under-20 level but had been on La Roja’s radar since the end of last year.
He produced his best season to date in the 2020-21 campaign with Blackburn, scoring seven goals and five assists.
That saw him rewarded by being named in Martin Lasarte’s squad for their June World Cup qualifiers and then Copa America.

Brereton led the line as the central striker for the closing stages and put himself about with some surging runs to stretch the opposition defence late on.
After the game, he said: “A pride and a great honor for me to make my debut in @laroja in the copa america, let’s go red!”
But Brereton and Chile’s Copa America run came to an end when they were beaten by Brazil in the quarter-finals.
