Alexis Sanchez and Chile teammates train for last time before facing Lionel Messi's Argentina - in pictures

Third-place Copa America match takes place at the Corinthians Arena in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Saturday, 11pm UAE

They may have missed out on a hat-trick of Copa America titles, but Chile will want to sign off their tournament in Brazil with a victory against Lionel Messi's Argentina on Saturday.

Alexis Sanchez and his Chile teammates suffered a 3-0 defeat to Peru in the semi-finals earlier this week to miss out on a gold medal match against the hosts.

That defeat denied them a third-straight Copa America final appearance, having won the past two editions, in 2015 and 2016.

Laying in wait for them in Sao Paulo are Messi and Co, who lost their last-four match 2-0 to Brazil. The third-place match takes place at the Corinthians Arena on Saturday, 11pm UAE.

Before Saturday's kick off the Chile squad were put through its paces for a final time on Friday by manager Reinaldo Rueda.
