Alexis Sanchez: I want Belgium to win the World Cup

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United star Alexis Sanchez has revealed that he hopes Belgium will go on to win the World Cup as the biggest competition in football starts to heat up.

The round of 16 stage has begun with Portugal vs Uruguay and France vs Argentina having already played and Belgium facing Japan in their next clash.

Unfortunately Sanchez’s Chile didn’t qualify for the World Cup and so he’s had to watch from the sidelines though there’s no doubting that Jose Mourinho is pleased with that.

The Portuguese manager would perhaps prefer if none of his players were called up for the competition as he’s already discussed his desire for them to get a proper holiday full of rest and recovery ahead of the next Premier League season.

Alexis is one of United’s stars who haven’t been involved along with others such as Chris Smalling or Antonio Valencia but he has revealed just why he’s backing Romelu Lukaku’s Belgium.

Since the former Arsenal man arrived at Old Trafford in the January transfer window he’s been constantly spotted alongside the Belgian star, especially on social media.

Hopefully their relationship off the field will influence their relationship on the field as the Red Devils will need both these stars in fine form if they want to win the title.
