Alexis Sanchez snubs Paul Pogba in World Cup admission



Alexis Sanchez has revealed who he wants to win the World Cup and Manchester United team-mate Paul Pogba will not be happy.
Sanchez missed out on the World Cup after Chile failed to qualify for the tournament.

But he’s been keeping a close eye on the goings-on in Russia with many of his Manchester United team-mates in action.

Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba, Marcos Rojo and David de Gea are among the United stars to have progressed to the last-16.

But Sanchez is wanting Marouane Fellaini and Romelu Lukaku to go all the way.

“I feel angry not to go, we could have been there, but I want Belgium to be world champion for my friend Lukaku,” Sanchez told Fox Sports.
“He is fine, on fire, I hope he is the World Cup top goalscorer.

“We are talking every day on WhatsApp, we go everywhere together [in England], we talk about what the team lacks.

“We get along very well. I think Belgium will be world champion.”

Belgium face Japan in the last-16 with a potential tie against Brazil in the quarter-finals.
Lukaku has four goals to his name in Russia, having scored a brace against both Tunisia and Panama.

The striker was rested for the dead rubber against England with both nations already through.

An Adnan Januzaj strike won it for Belgium, meaning they topped the group and leaving England preparing to face Colombia on Tuesday (7pm).
