VIDEO: Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez scores awesome free-kick to equal Chile goal record

The South American nation says it would be willing to join forces with other countries in order to host the footballing world's biggest event

Alexis Sanchez take a bow!

Man Utd interested in Arsenal duo

The Arsenal star equalled Marcelo Salas's all-time goalscoring record for Chile as he notched his 37th for his country against Venezuela, and in some style.

Watch the clip below as he smashes home an unstoppable free-kick that clips the underside of the bar and flies into the net, leaving goalkeeper Wuilker Farínez with no chance.

And it's further evidence, as if Gunners fans needed it, of the 28-year-old's value to Arsenal, with the former Barcelona star's contract due to expire in 2018.

With no new deal having been agreed, Alexis, who has 22 goals in all competitions for the north Londoners this season, has been linked with a summer move to the likes of Chelsea and Bayern Munich.
