Alexis Sanchez: ‘English footballers are pampered and they have no chance of winning World Cup’ Empty Alexis Sanchez: ‘English footballers are pampered and they have no chance of winning World Cup’

Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez has hit out at the culture of football in England and believes Roy Hodgson's men have no chance of glory in next year's World Cup.

Sanchez will be the star player in the South American side's line-up when they face England in a friendly at Wembley on Friday evening.

The 24-year-old recently passed 100 appearances for Spanish giants Barcelona, but claims he has had to work hard to rise to the top from the streets of Chile.

That is in stark contrast to his England counterparts, whom Sanchez perceives as being pampered from a young age.

"We are a tougher team than England," he said in the Daily Express. "The problem for teams like England is that everything is so easy for them. They join these academies at maybe 10 or 11 years old and everything is done for them.

"I used to wash cars for such little money just so I had enough money to buy my football boots. When you are at academies like Manchester United and Arsenal then everything is just given to you.

"If I had failed I would be working 15-hour days on construction sites and still not be earning enough to live. Football saved me, and I don't think any England players could say that."

The former Udinese man also cast doubt on England's hopes of victory in next year's World Cup in Brazil.

A European side has never triumphed when the event has been held in South America, but while Sanchez is hopeful of his own nation's hopes, he thinks Spain and Germany will be leading contenders.

"I don't think England can win the World Cup," he said. "They have some very good players but are probably not at the level where they can beat the best.

"It will be very hard for any team outside of South America to win in Brazil, but if two teams have a chance then it is Spain and Germany. Their teams are exceptional.

"We have to believe that Chile has a chance. It is not a home tournament but we must take advantage of it being in South America. We will not have to adjust to the conditions as much as other nations."

Meanwhile, Rickie Lambert thinks Chile striker Alexis Sanchez has done England's team-talk for them by branding Roy Hodgson's squad "soft".

I was laughed at by Mole and others when I said Chile is probably top 5 in terms of actually being a team(Not Squad, but an actual team) in the world.

I will be vindicated when Chile Beats both England and Brazil over this international break.


I will also be embarrassed when they go on to lose to Tahiti or another equally small nation before the world cup.

Its Chile....

Well Chile's isn't top 5 but definately top 15, methinks. They have an awesome midfield Isla, Vidal, Medel, along with Alexis but that's about it.

spain, germany, argentina, brazil, italy, netherlands, portugal, uruguay, france, belgium, colombia all definitely better than chile imo.

so no, definitely not top 5, or even top 10, top 15 feels about right but closer to 10, maybe.

I don't know why England play friendlies, it's pointless, if we win the reaction is it's just a friendly, we're shit when it matters, and if we lose/draw we're just shit Laughing

I cant even be mad with you putting Colombia  in there after the way that match in Barranquilla went last month. It was typical Chile.

Absolutely owned them until halftime, and then went out and didnt even TRY to play for the next 45 minutes. Horrid display.

Also Brazil has whats coming to them next week
