Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez assisted QPR striker Eduardo Vargas for Chile’s opener during their 3-0 win over Peru last night.
The Gunners’ expensive summer signing from Barcelona was involved throughout as he linked up well with Vargas and Arturo Vidal to devastating effect.
Midway through the first-half, Sanchez picked up the ball and lofted a superb pass through to Vargas who beat the onrushing goalkeeper to hook in the opening goal of the game.
It was a delightful pass from 25-year-old, and one which the likes of Lionel Messi had accustomed to during Sanchez’s time with the Catalan giants.
Now, it is the Gunners who are expected to profit from his creativity though French boss Arsene Wenger needs to solve the dilemma of using the Chilean as a winger with freedom or a striker down the middle.
The on-loan Vargas arrived in West London with an impressive record with his country – 17 goals in 36 games – yet he has yet to be given the service at the Hoops to make an impression.
The former Universidad de Chile wonderkid went on to grab Chile’s third in the second half with a neat near-post finish as he profited from some hesitant Peruvian defending.
