Arsenal star is now resting up.
Soccer: 2016 Copa America Centenario-Argentina at Chile
It takes a lot to slow Arsenal speedster Alexis Sanchez down, but Argentina managed it in the Copa American final.
A crunching challenge saw his foot bend unnaturally, at he is lucky he did not break it.

Chile went on to win the tournament for a second year in succession, proving their win in their homeland last year was no fluke.
Now though, Sanchez is dealing with the painful after effects... and this one looks pretty nasty.

Sanchez's message says that he is stuck inside 'bored' in a hotel room, but is at least resting his foot.
And from an Arsenal perspective, that is what the club need him to be doing right now, relaxing and recuperating, before the Premier League season kicks off again in six weeks time.
The attacker is Arsenal's second most expensive ever signing, and seeing him get injured on international duty is a nightmare from a club perspective. They will be thankful that it was not more serious.
