Pope Francis will visit Chile and Peru in January, the Vatican said Monday, on a trip that will take the Catholic Church's first South American pontiff from Santiago to Lima.

"His Holiness Pope Francis will make an Apostolic Trip to Chile from 15 to 18 January 2018... and Peru from 18 to 21 January," the Vatican said in a statement, adding that the details of the trip would be released at a later date.

Plans for a papal trip to the two countries were raised earlier this year during a meeting between the pope and several Chilean bishops after an initial idea for Francis to tour Argentina, Uruguay and Chile was deemed too extensive.

The pontiff's trip to majority-Catholic Chile will take him from Santiago, to Temuco and Iquique, while his stay in Peru will see him travel from Lima to Puerto Maldonado and Trujillo.

Alexis Sanchez struck early to become Chile's all-time leading scorer on Thursday as the South American champions were held by Germany's young squad to a 1-1 draw that left both teams in good position to advance to the semifinals of the Confederations Cup. Sanchez netted his 38th goal with the Chilean national team by poking the ball into the net with his left foot after a smart pass by Arturo Vidal in the sixth minute. The ball hit the near post before crossing the line to allow the Arsenal forward to pass the 37 goals scored by Marcelo Salas.
