Alexis Sanchez has taken to social media to express his delight after the injured Arsenal star watched his team-mates book their place in the last 16 of the Champions League with an impressive 3-0 victory at Olympiacos.
Olivier Giroud hit a brilliant hat-trick in Athens as Arsene Wenger’s men claimed the required result to progress to the knockout stage of Europe’s elite club competition.
The north London side finished second in their group behind winners Bayern Munich and will learn their last-16 opponents during Monday’s draw.
And Sanchez, who is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury and recovering in his native Chile, could not hide his delight at seeing the Gunners progress to the knockout phase.
Sanchez tweeted on Wednesday night:
So happy for the victory of the team, we are in the next stage !!! #UCL 🏽
