    Hello everyone. This is football (soccer). I don't understand the phrase "key pieces of the puzzle" here. What does it mean?

    49' Sampaoli is putting a lot of faith in his players for this second half, with Sanchez and Vidal proving to be key pieces of the puzzle in La Roja's previous fixtures. Bolivia attack from the start, but a low strike from Moreno is smothered well by Bravo. First save of the half for the Barca goalkeeper.

    Imagine a jigsaw puzzle. The key pieces are the most important ones.
