Sanchez plots revenge over Brazil

A woman walks by a wall with an image of Chilean footballer Alexis Sanchez in Tocopilla port, on February 17, 2015Chile forward Alexis Sanchez plans to make the most of home advantage as the Arsenal star plots on revenge against Brazil in Sunday's friendly at the Emirates Stadium. Sanchez is still smarting from Chile's World Cup exit at the hands of the hosts less than 12 months ago and he would love to make amends by leading his country to victory over their South American rivals at the home of his current club. The 26-year-old, who moved to north London from Barcelona last year, scored Chile's equaliser in a dramatic last-16 clash in Belo Horizonte, but it was Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar who finished as the hero after saving two penalties, including one from Sanchez, to seal a 3-2 win in the shoot-out.

With Poland top of Group D, three points ahead of Ireland, Germany and Scotland, defeat for O'Neill's men could prove fatal to their dreams of making it to a second successive European finals — and the omens aren't good.
