The Gunners’ star, voted man of the match, became Chile’s all-time top-scorer with his 38th international goal after capitalising on an early mistake in the German defence.

Sanchez has yet to sign a new deal with Arsenal and nored a question about his future as he accepted the man-of-the-match award.

“I’m very happy to be Chile’s top-scorer now, our dream is to win this tournament and we feel we have a chance,” said Sanchez.

Despite falling behind, inexperienced Germany fought back as Lars Stindl netted his second goal of the tournament to equalise for the world champions just before the break.

The result leaves South American champions Chile top of Group B on goal difference from the Germans.

With both teams on four points, three ahead  of Australia and Cameroon who drew 1-1 earlier, they are in pole position to reach next week’s semifinals.
