Alexis Sanchez chills out with Arturo Vidal after helping Chile reach the Copa America final

Alexis Sanchez looks to be enjoying himself on Copa America duty with Chile this summer.

The Arsenal forward is currently on duty with his country as he bids to help them defend the title they won last year.

Sanchez helped Chile secure a 2-0 win over Colombia on Thursday in the semi-finals to book their place in the showpiece against Argentina on Sunday.

And Sanchez was all smiles as he posed for a snap with former Arsenal transfer target Arturo Vidal in a jacuzzi after the game.

Sanchez uploaded the picture above onto his personal Instagram account and wrote: “I do not care what people think badly of us. We know what we have suffered, all that we have cried and everything that has cost us get up and smile again.”

Sanchez has been one of Arsenal’s standout performers since arriving at The Emirates from Barcelona in the summer of 2014.

He helped the Gunners win the FA Cup in his first season at the club but was forced to settle for a trophyless campaign last term as Arsenal finished second in the Premier League, 10 points behind champions Leicester.
