    Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez confirms injury

    Cameroon 0 – Chile 2

    Chile got off to a winning start at the Confederations Cup on Sunday night as they beat Cameroon 2-0.

    Both goals arrived in the second half. Arturo Vidal broke the deadlock in the 82nd minute, while Eduardo Vargas doubled Chile’s lead in injury time.

    Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez only played 30 minutes of the match.

    In the build up to the contest, news filtered out of the Chile camp that Alexis was injured.

    Sanchez has picked up a sprained left ankle in training ahead of this summer’s tournament in Russia.

    Coach Juan Antonio Pizzi admitted his star has been suffering with his “problem for a couple of days”, while he only played a cameo role in the Cameroon game.

    Sanchez confirms injury

    After the match against the reigning African Cup of Nations victors, Sanchez posted a couple of images on social media revealing just how puffed up his ankle is.

    It’s clear that Arsenal star has a problem, and he likely needs time to rest up before his injury improves.

    Chile are back in action on Thursday when they face World Champions Germany.
