Arsenal value Alexis Sanchez as arguably their most important player - but unfortunately for them Chile feel the same way.
The attacker is on international duty at present, and once again despite not being at his best, he started for them in last night's match against Colombia.
Despite a disappointing display he was kept on for all 90 minutes, as the two sides shared the points in a 1-1 draw, which saw him go up against Arsenal teammate David Ospina.
Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal scored Chile's goal, with Real Madrid attacker James Rodriguez netting for the visitors.
Sanchez struggled to make his usual impact, carrying over the lethargic form he showed for Arsenal against Tottenham in his last Premier League game.
The Mirror reported this week that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is considering handing Sanchez a mid-season rest, after fearing the player will suffer burnout, having barely had a rest in the summer, starring for Chile into July as they lifted the Copa America on home soil.
His nation are determined to keep him involved though, and that decision has not entirely been well received among Arsenal fans. Here is a look at their reaction to the match...
Ospina had a decent game for Colombia. Alexis crowded out really by the Colombian defence. Found it hard to get into the game.— Tim Stillman (@Stillberto) November 13, 2015
Sanchez plays the full 90 minutes for Chile. Those guys don't even give him 5 minutes rest.— Trenthescreenwriter (@Goonertren) November 13, 2015
