Alexis Sanchez sends tweet to Neymar ahead of Emirates Stadium clash

Alexis Sanchez Chile

The Chile international has contacted his former Barcelona team-mate ahead of his nation’s clash with Brazil in North London.

Arsenal fans will have the chance to take in some of the best players on the planet as Chile and Brazil play against each other in an international friendly at the Emirates Stadium this Sunday.

The Gunners faithful will have an eye out for a number of their players, with Alexis Sanchez set to star for his nation and Gabriel Paulista potentially receiving a debut for the Selecao after being called up to replace the injured David Luiz.

Sanchez is clearly looking forward to the fixture against his South American rivals and has sent a tweet to Neymar in the build-up to the clash.

The Barcelona star will be one of the major draw cards for attendees of the game and is Brazil’s highest-profile player.

Chile and Brazil met at the World Cup in the summer, with the tournament hosts knocking Sanchez’s side out of the competition on penalties.

With the Copa America taking place in Chile this summer, there is every likelihood that these two teams could meet again in the near future in a competitive environment.

Arsenal fans can dream of a situation where Neymar plays at the Emirates on a regular basis, but as part of Barcelona’s high-profile attack the Brazilian’s future looks to be at Camp Nou.
