[Photo] Sanchez Celebrates In Changing Room After Copa America Win

By on June 27, 2016

Arsenal super-star Alexis Sanchez has shared a photo of himself posing with the Copa America trophy and the Player of the Tournament award after Chile retained the Copa America with a penalty shoot-out win over Argentina last night.

Both teams were reduced to 10-men in the first half with Marcelo Diaz dismissed for Chile before Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo was shown the red card shortly before half-time.

However, neither team could break the deadlock so it went to a shoot-out with Barcelona star Lionel Messi among those to miss as Chile triumphed to retain the Copa America.

Sanchez wasn’t involved in the penalty drama as he was substituted during extra-time but the Arsenal man was in excellent form throughout the competition having scored 2 goals and claiming 3 assists in his 5 appearances.

It resulted in Alexis being named as the Player of the Tournament and the attacker has taken to Instagram to share a photo of himself posing topless in the changing room with his award and the Copa America trophy.

Congratulations Alexis. Now go enjoy a long holiday and come back refreshed for pre-season!

No tengo Palabras. Solo agradecer a mis compañeros y toda la gente que nos apoyó … Ahora chilenos, a disfrutar .
