I can't wait to play against my friend Neymar at the Emirates, says Alexis Sanchez

Chile star Alexis Sanchez is relishing the opportunity of taking on Neymar when the Copa America hosts meet Brazil at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium.

The South American rivals go head-to-head in a Brasil Global Tour friendly international at Alexis’ club home in London on Sunday, March 29.

The match is the first meeting between the two teams since their World Cup 2014 last-16 clash, which Brazil edged on penalties following an action-packed 1-1 draw.

And Alexis, who made the move to Arsenal from Barcelona last summer, is eagerly anticipating the showpiece and the reunion with his former Camp Nou colleague.

"I’m so excited and honoured to be playing for the national team of Chile, against our great rivals Brazil, in front of the incredible Arsenal fans at Emirates Stadium," Alexis told his club’s official website.

"I also look forward to playing against my good friend Neymar and welcoming him and the rest of the Brazil team to Emirates Stadium in March.

"Matches between Brazil and Chile are always exciting encounters, and for me, to play this game at Emirates Stadium will make the match even more special."

Ticket Prices from £15 concessions and £30 for adults. Tickets will go on General Sale at 3pm on Friday, February 6, 2015 (booking fees apply).
