Chicago, June 21: Injured midfielders Alexis Sanchez and Marcelo Diaz remained on the sidelines here during Chile football team’s first practice for their Copa America semi-fil against Colombia.

During the 15 minutes of the session that was open to the press on Monday, Alexis sat on the bench and Diaz jogged around the perimeter of the pitch while their teammates worked out with the ball, reports Efe.

The two midfielders suffered minor injuries in Chile’s 7-0 quarter-fil rout of Mexico last Saturday.

Both the Chilean and Colombian tiol sides are training on the campus of the University of Illinois at Chicago ahead of Wednesday’s contest at Soldier Field in the Windy City. The victor in that match will go on to face the winner of Tuesday’s United States-Argenti semi-fil, set for NRG Stadium in Houston. IANS
