Alexis Sanchez was thrilled to be reunited with former Barcelona team-mate Neymar on Sunday
Alexis Sanchez took to social media on Sunday evening to reveal his delight at being reunited with former team-mate Neymar in Chile’s friendly clash with Brazil.
Arsenal star Sanchez came up against his ex-Barcelona team-mate as Brazil ran out 1-0 winners at Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
And the Chile star was clearly thrilled to see his former team-mate on Sunday after Roberto Firmino’s 72nd-minute strike handed Brazil victory.
Sanchez uploaded the photo above onto his Instagram account and wrote: “Lindo reencuentro ☺️ Nice meeting ☺️”
In the build-up to Sunday’s clash Sanchez spoke of his admiration for Neymar.
Sanchez has been one of the Premier League’s standout performers since his £35m transfer to Arsenal from Barcelona last summer.
The Chile international has scored 13 goals and made seven assists in 27 top-flight games for Arsene Wenger’s men to help the north London side up to third place in the table.
He also scored three times and made one assist in seven Champions League games for his new team.
Sanchez will be expecting to feature when Arsenal host Liverpool at The Emirates on Saturday lunchtime.
