Tottenham ace helped shut down one of the world's best strikers.
When Tottenham splashed out a club record £42 million on Davinson Sanchez last summer it seemed like a lot for a centre-back with just one season in Europe behind him for Ajax.
He quickly proved his doubters wrong, including Paul Merson, who told SkySports last summer he had never heard of him.
Last night at the World Cup, Sanchez showed that the £42 million Spurs paid actually looks cheap.
He shut down prolific Poland striker Robert Lewandowski, who scored 29 goals in 30 Bundesliga games last season.
As part of a defensive duo with Yerry Mina, Sanchez delivered a dominant performance.
Making a team high six clearances, Sanchez enhanced his reputation on the big stage.
Indeed if Tottenham had left it a year, and decided to bid for him after the World Cup, then Ajax would have been able to command a far bigger fee.
Sanchez's Colombia face Senegal in a decisive group game up next, before a potential World Cup last 16 clash with Tottenham teammate Harry Kane's England.
