Alexis Sanchez picked up an ankle injury in training just before the Copa America final; he played, despite being in pain and now it’s not looking good.
The forward shared a few pictures of his swollen ankle on Twitter and it doesn’t look comfortable at all. He insisted that it was all for the good of his country and that he had to do it but I’m hoping this doesn’t have further repercussions. The guy needs to rest and heal.
The severity of the ankle injury remains to be accessed, it seems to be in a supportive boot at the moment, but I’m sure we’ll be hearing news soon enough.
