Inter Milan forward Alexis Sanchez faces "two or three months out" after injuring his ankle on international duty, Chile boss Reinaldo Rueda says.

Sanchez - on loan at the Italian club from Manchester United - was hurt in Chile's 0-0 friendly draw with Colombia in Alicante on Saturday.

The Chilean Football Federation said the 30-year-old had dislocated tendons in his left ankle.

Sanchez has returned to Milan for further assessment.

Sanchez, who joined Antonio Conte's Inter on a season-long loan deal in August, scored on his first start for the Serie A title hopefuls against Sampdoria on 28 September and he also impressed in their Champions League defeat at his former club Barcelona.
