Barcelona's Sanchez says Chile are out to stop Man Utd's England ace Rooney

Alexis Sanchez suggests the Chilean national team will be out to quell the influence of Wayne Rooney on Friday night.

La Roja meet England in a friendly at Wembley and the Barcelona forward is of the belief that Manchester United star Rooney is the man to stop if the visitors want to record a positive result.

"Rooney has power, he is one of the strongest forwards in the world," said Sanchez.

"It's going to be marvellous to play against him.

"(But) I think we have the defenders that can stop Rooney."
