Rio de Janeiro, Sep 7: Arsel star Alexis Sanchez has hit back at critics that have taken aim at him and Chile’s tiol team after their disastrous double header of South American zone World Cup football qualifiers. Chile lost to Paraguay 0-3 in Santiago last Thursday before suffering a 0-1 defeat to Bolivia in La Paz on Tuesday.
The results left the reigning Copa America champions sixth in the CONMEBOL group standings and Juan Antonio Pizzi’s side need to win their last two qualifiers against Ecuador and Brazil next month to have any hope of going to Russia next year. “There comes a time when you get tired,” said Sanchez, who has been singled for particularly harsh criticism by Chile’s media, in a social media post.
