Alexis Sanchez has been preparing for today's match between Chile and Brazil in a rather unusual way - by bringing his pet dogs along to training.

The Arsenal forward is expected to be in action for this afternoon's game at his club's Emirates Stadium and yesterday took his furry friends along to the Gunners' London Colney training base.

Whilst Sanchez is used to giving his opponents the run-around, it appeared Atom and Humber were leading the 26-year-old a merry dance from the pictures the forward posted on social media.

Sanchez will be hoping his unusual training regime will make the difference in today's match having seen his side lose 2-0 to Iran on Thursday. Chile take on a Brazil side that have won all their matches since their embarrassment at the World Cup.
