Alexis Sanchez is of the belief that England are capable of winning the 2014 World Cup.

The 24-year old Barcelona forward is preparing for Chile's international friendly against the Three Lions at Wembley on Friday and suggested at a press conference that Roy Hodgson has a squad good enough to salute in Brazil next year.

"It gives me great pride to face England," he said.

"They are one of the strongest teams in the world. England could easily win the World Cup.

"For me it's a privilege to play against them.

"I believe it's going to be a beautiful game.

"You don't play every day against a strong team like them and for us it's going to be historic."
