Chile coach Pizzi plans London crisis talks with Arsenal attacker Alexis

Chile manager Juan Antonio Pizzi has flown to Europe for talks with Arsenal attacker Alexis Sanchez.

El Mercurio says Pizzi will speak to Sanchez and Bayer Leverkusen's Charles Aranguiz during his trip.

The purpose of the talks is to work out how the squad can pull together for their crucial World Cup qualifiers against Ecuador and Brazil next month.

Chile currently sit sixth in the South American qualification table for the 2018 World Cup.

Only the top four nations are guaranteed progression, with the fifth-placed team entering a playoff.
