Manchester United's young Chilean striker, Angelo Henriquez, is prioritising his integration into English football over U-20 World Cup preparations with his national team.

Despite this, Chile Under 20 coach Mario Salas hopes to use the 18 year old in the upcoming tournament in Turkey this summer.

The manager can ill afford to rule out his star striker, but at the same time refuted the idea of favouritism within the squad.

"I am no one to close the door to a player, but I want to clarify that there will be no special treatment for Angelo Henriquez, Bryan Rabello and Diego Rubio. Footballers they are like everyone else," said Salas.

Henriquez is currently on loan with Wigan Athletic until the end of the English Premier League season.
