Chilean national team manager Martin Lasarte has given an update on the condition of Inter forward Alexis Sanchez, stating that the 32-year-old could be called up for World Cup qualifiers during the upcoming international break.

Speaking to Chilean newspaper El Mercurio in an interview published in today’s print edition, the Chilean coach explained that Sanchez could be involved in international duty, but that it would be dependent on his fitness.

The Chilean has been dealing with a persistent calf injury for much of the summer, having missed all but 45 minutes of the Copa America with his country.

He has continued to struggle with the knock, having missed the Nerazzurri’s Serie A season opener against Genoa and also set to be ruled out of the Verona clash this Friday.

The 32-year-old’s status beyond that is uncertain, however, and it remains to be seen if he will return in time for the international break, or for the club fixtures after it.

Lasarte makes clear that it will be a last minute decision as to whether to call him up, with his recovery timeline not clear.

“We will wait until the last minute to decide on exactly what his situation is. If he is able to play, we will call him up,” he said.”

“Otherwise, unfortunately, we would not, because playing him if he is not in the right condition we would put him at risk for the games we have to play the following month.”
