Chile are set to play Alexis Sanchez in their upcoming World Cup qualifier against Argentina after declaring him in a ‘good condition’ despite his ankle injury in the weekend.

The 28-year old has been in fine form for Arsenal in weekend before he suffered an ankle injury in the first half courtesy of a bad tackle in their 3-1 defeat to West Brom on Saturday.

He was subbed off in the second half as Arsene Wenger later revealed that his talisman has suffered an ankle injury and could not carry on second half which is why the Chilean came off in the latter stages of game.

The Frenchman has also feared that the Chilean might have had sustained ankle ligament damage after the game. However, Sanchez has travelled to Santiago after the game to link up with the national team.

And according to Chilean media outlet El Grafico, the national team medical staff has declared him fit to face Argentina on Thursday in their crucial World Cup qualifier.

Arsenal and Arsene Wenger will surely not be in good mood after the decision as the national team had already risked Sanchez during their last international break (in November) when Wenger slammed Chilean federation for their ‘suicidal’ decision to play the 28-year old.

It could see a similar response from the club if the federation decides to risk him once again as Arsenal will need to pay the price if the Chilean suffers another injury on national duty. Alexis Sanchez remains a major player for Arsenal during the business end of the season as they aim to finish in top four to claim Champions League places next season.
