Daily Cannon spent Monday basking in the ambiance of Alexis Sanchez’s Copa America win with Chile, as well as sifting through the usual gossip.
The Chilean and his countrymen beat Argentina to win the Copa America tournament for the second year in a row, and the 27-year-old even won Player of the Tournament.
Alexis, unfortunately, played with an injury, which doesn’t look great, but he insisted that he had to do what he could for his country.
Ian Wright said that Mesut Ozil can be one of the best no.10s in the world on his day, while Germany’s official Twitter account bantered him (and us) right off instead.
We translated a L’Equipe interview with Kos where he talked tactics – and well; France’s Griezmann talked up Giroud; Bendtner continued his one-man mission to infiltrate the Arsenal camp since being released by Wolfsburg and Xhaka visited the Emirates.
Arsenal have once again been linked with Lacazette, who is probably our main hope of a new striker this summer, Icardi – for some reason, and Brazilian wonder-teenager (?), Gabigol.
Embolo, meanwhile, signed for Schalke and the Bundesliga club mocked us.
In the Euros, Bellerin was benched as Spain was knocked out by Italy (2-0) and Wilshere was involved (barely) in England’s embarrassing 2-1 defeat to Iceland.
