What Davinson Sanchez did to Dani Alves during Colombia vs Brazil


Many Spurs fans may not know too much about Davinson Sanchez.

The defender arrived for a club record £42 million at the end of the transfer window from Ajax with a growing reputation.

“I know people who know him and they are all very positive, they rate him very highly,” Jan Vertonghen said about his new teammate.

“It’s always nice to have new players in the squad and we’re looking forward to seeing him training. It will mean more competition for places but that’s what football is all about."

With the 21-year-old only playing 32 league matches for Ajax before his move to Spurs, many supporters may never have seen him play before.

However, they got a chance when he made his second appearance for Colombia against Brazil on Tuesday night.

And to say he made a good impression would be an understatement.

Colombia earned a credible 1-1 draw with the Brazilians to keep themselves in second position in the South American qualifying group for the Russia World Cup - still 11 points behind Brazil.


But it was a moment in the second-half that Spurs fans would have loved.

Paris Saint-Germain’s Dani Alves was played in down the right wing and Sanchez saw his opportunity. He sprinted over and, rather brutally, shoulder-barged the Brazilian.

Take a look:

He absolutely destroyed him and the referee didn’t even give a free-kick!

Foul or not, though, Twitter - and Spurs fans in particular - enjoyed it.

We’re not sure too many Premier League strikers will enjoy watching this clip of Sanchez. They certainly won’t be going in for too many 50/50’s with the youngster this season.
