SANCHEZ REPORTED TO BE FIT TO FACE ARGENTINA

Chile may have received a boost ahead of their crunch World Cup qualifying match against Argentina, with Alexis Sanchez reportedly fit to play.

The star striker scored in Arsenal’s 3-1 Premier League defeat to West Brom on Saturday but had to be substituted in the second half after finding himself on the wrong end of a heavy James McClean tackle.

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger delivered a grim initial prognosis, claiming the forward’s ankle had been left in an “absolutely terrible state”.

But the 28-year-old former Barcelona player has nevertheless travelled to South America for his country’s matches away to Argentina and at home to Venezuela.

And a report in El Grafico claims a member of the Chile national team’s medical staff has declared that Sanchez is likely to be fit to take on Edgardo Bauza’s side in Buenos Aires on Thursday.
