It was another impressive tournament for the Chileans, who continued their rise as the new big hitters of South American football.
As usual Alexis Sanchez was key their success as he scored three goals throughout the tournament and fulfilled his role as their key man.
His performances did not go unnoticed either as he was named the player of the tournament to make it a double success for him this summer, and Elneny has taken to Twitter to congratulate his teammate on his success.

Arsenal will now be hoping that Sanchez can carry this form into next season as they look to bounce back from the disappointment of the last campaign.
Sanchez was one of the player’s who struggled, with a long term injury in the middle of the season not helping matters.
One of the issues was the fact he spent the summer with Chile in that maiden Copa American success and they will be hoping this summer doesn’t have a similar affect.
