Alexis Sanchez becomes Chile's all-time top scorer with 38th goal

Alexis Sanchez scored his 38th international goal to become Chile's all-time top scorer as he supplied a 1-0 lead over Germany at the Confederations Cup on Thursday.

Chile took advantage of a German giveaway and Sanchez beat Germany keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen at the near post to set the record.

In his 112th appearance for Chile, the Arsenal forward passed Marcelo Salas, who scored 37 goals in just 71 caps.

The 28-year-old also equalled the record for most Chile caps, matching goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, who remained on the bench with an injury.
