Alexis Sanchez may have failed to add to his Copa America tally on Wednesday night but the Arsenal forward was still delighted to help Chile book their place in the semi-finals.

Former Queens Park Rangers midfielder Mauricio Isla scored an 81st-minute winner to seal a 1-0 victory over nine-man Uruguay in a bad-tempered quarter-final.

The hosts will now face Peru or Bolivia for a place in their first-ever Copa America final, which will be an apt time for Sanchez to score his second goal of the tournament on home turf.

The Arsenal star looked very relaxed as the 26-year-old posted a selfie on his Instagram page following the 1-0 victory last night.

Sanchez wrote: “Happy for our victory and for our team”

Sanchez has scored just one goal in the Copa America so far, although Juventus playmaker Arturo Vidal has netted three times.

The Gunners forward enjoyed a successful first season in the Premier League after he scored 16 goals and made eight assists in 34 games.

The Chilean, who moved to Arsenal in a £35m deal from Barcelona, also won the FA Cup at Wembley in May.
