The 28-year-old did not start the match in Moscow but played a major role in Juan Antonio Pizzi’s men securing the group-stage win after coming off the bench in the 58th minute.

Sanchez, who replaced Edson Puch just after the break, provided a tantalising cross which Bayern Munich star Arturo Vidal headed home to put Chile 1-0 in front with just under ten minutes remaining.

The Arsenal forward also set up Eduardo Vargas’ goal with a brilliant run in the 90th minute which put Chile out of sight at the death.

Sanchez shared a photograph of his swollen ankle which prevented the Gunners attacker from starting the match at the Otkrytiye Arena.
