Alexis Sanchez becomes Chile’s all-time top scorer


Alexis Sanchez, the Arsenal playmaker who’s out on international duty with Chile has become the countries all-time top scorer after scoring his 38th international goal in Thursday’s draw with Germany at the Confederations Cup.

Sanchez opened the scoring after maximizing an error made in defence by fellow Arsenal teammate Mustafi.

Germany equalised through Lars Stindl just before the break, and following a keenly contested second half, the game ended all square to keep Chile top of Group B, ahead of Germany on goals difference.

Sanchez said in the post match comments “I’m very happy to be Chile’s top scorer. Our dream is to win this tournament and we feel we have a chance, we played well in the first half, but Germany adapted very well to how we were playing.”

Chile and Germany need minimum of a point each from their remaining Group B games against Australia and Cameroon to progress to the semi-finals.
