Tottenham fans heap praise on incredible Sanchez

Tottenham fans are running out of superlatives for Davinson Sanchez, after the Colombian centre back put in a beastly shift in his side’s dramatic loss to England.

Not many Colombian players covered themselves in glory on Tuesday night, as their snide tactics to infuriate England’s players were as disappointing as their performance.

The South Americans were of course without their best creative spark in James Rodriguez, but they set out not to lose the game, rather than trying to win it.

That said, one player who shone like a diamond in the rough was Tottenham’s Sanchez, who was an absolute monster at the back.

The 22 year-old had a few lapses of concentration in his first season in North London, but overall he was extremely impressive for a young defender in a new league, and he showed every ounce of his composure and class on Tuesday night.

Sanchez’s partnership with Yerry Mina has been one of the standout parts of the tournament, and it’s starting to feel like Spurs might not really even miss Toby Alderweireld if he leaves this summer.

Fans are absolutely loving the youngster’s performance, and they’re particularly proud that he stayed out of any below the belt tactics.
