The after effects of Sanchez's particiption against Brazil

By 1970's Gooner

There were worries about Sanchez's groin strain just before Chile's game against Brazil. Important worries that even the Chile boss was considering resting Alexis.

"Alexis arrived not at his top of form, with pain in the adductor. He couldn't play at 100% but we thought that for us him not playing was to give too much advantage to our rivals because his presence in our team makes things difficult for our opponents."

So he played the full 90 minutes and scored in the 2 0 victory.

Now Chile play Peru on Tuesday and the question is whether Sanchez will be rested. I doubt it as he has taken part in the training session today and if he does not get worse then the Chile coach will use him.

What worries us gooners however is the likely negative aftereffects on Sanchez's groin of having to play two full competitive games in the space of five days.

We have to also take also into consideration that Alexis will travel back to London on a long haul transatlantic flight.

Arsenal play away to Watford next Saturday evening and then Bayern Munich next Tuesday at The Emirates.
