Tottenham Hotspur fans have lavished praise on central defender Davinson Sanchez after Colombia beat Argentina in the Copa America over the weekend.
The centre-back played the 90 minutes against the likes of Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and Angel Di Maria as Carlos Queiroz’s men ran out surprise 2-0 winners.
Second-half goals from Roger Martinez and Duvan Zapata ultimately proved decisive in Salvador.
The result was a major setback to Argentina’s hopes of reaching the Copa America final for the third straight tournament, with Sanchez’s side tasting victory over Messi and co for the first time in 12 years.
Paraguay and Qatar make up Group B, while Colombia face the 2022 World Cup hosts on Wednesday.
And Spurs fans were thrilled with defender Sanchez’s performance, as he made four tackles – no player made more – won five aerial duels and produced five clearances, per WhoScored, throughout the 90 minutes.
