Alexis Sanchez: 'I can't wait to face Neymar at Emirates Stadium'

Neymar and Alexis

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez can’t wait to face his former Barcelona team-mate Neymar when the two meet at Emirates Stadium for Chile’s game against Brazil next month.

The clash between South America’s elite will see Neymar pitted against Sanchez for the first time since their 2014 World Cup last 16 clash which Brazil edged on penalties.

“I’m so excited and honoured to be playing for the national team of Chile, against our great rivals Brazil, in front of the incredible Arsenal fans at Emirates Stadium.

“I also look forward to playing against my good friend Neymar and welcoming him and the rest of the Brazil team to Emirates Stadium in March.

“Matches between Brazil and Chile are always exciting encounters, and for me, to play this game at Emirates Stadium will make the match even more special.”
