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."
