Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is on international duty with Chile along with new Barcelona signing Claudio Bravo.

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is currently on international duty with Chile in the USA.

The South American side will play two friendly matches in the coming days, first against Mexico in Santa Clara and then against Haiti in Miami.

Chile coach Jorge Sampaoli has named a strong 23-man squad for the two games which includes Juventus star Arturo Vidal and former Cardiff City defender Gary Medel.

Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio Bravo is the captain of the team, and posted the following photo of him and Arsenal star Sanchez having breakfast together on social networking site Twitter on Friday along with the message: ‘Breakfast with the best! Greetings @Alexis_Sanchez’.

Bravo, who joined Barcelona from Real Sociedad in the summer, and Sanchez, who moved to Arsenal from the Catalan club, both are expected to be in the Chile starting line-up against Mexico.

The game will be played in the early hours of Sunday morning (UK time), with the South American side expected to win. It will not be easy, though, as Mexico also have a good team and will be determined to beat the Chileans.
