Tottenham Hotspur’s Davinson Sanchez handled himself well against the world’s best this morning.
Tottenham Hotspur and neutral fans were left drooling over Davinson Sanchez’s performance for Colombia on Sunday morning.
The Colombians kicked off their Copa America campaign in style by beating South American giants 2-0.
The likes of Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero couldn’t find a way through and much of that is down to the Tottenham centre-back, who kept the duo – especially Messi – on a short leash.
Sanchez only turned 23 last week and it’s scary to think how good the Spurs defender could be in a few short years, if he’s already at this level.
Here’s how some fans of the North London club – and neutral supporters – reacted to the young powerhouse’s performance:

1. Davinson was superb and had Aguero in his pocket throughout
2. No Foyth but by the looks of the right back tonight he will surely play next game
3. Lo Celso struggled on the right. fans unhappy saying he was out of position
That’s just what happens when you come up against Davinson man https://t.co/oAZgyIeiTL— Adam (@HxungMin) June 16, 2019
Davinson Sánchez dropped a master class vs Argentina today. His team also won and a clean sheet. Normal level. My Colombian King.— Ekene (@OgaDavinson) June 16, 2019
Anyone looking for Aguero should check Davinson Sanchez’s pocket…he’s in there somewhere— SpursinTokyo (@elvitzki) June 16, 2019
Davinson Sanchez will be one of the best CB in the world If not the best. We’re so lucky to have him @daosanchez26— OnomahIsABaller (@SpursD22) June 16, 2019
He was class tonight. He ate Aguero— Manoamano (@Manoama89203646) June 16, 2019
If you don’t hear from me tomorrow it’s because I’m spreading Davinson Sanchez propaganda all night pic.twitter.com/ywPx0QeZOW— Adam (@HxungMin) June 16, 2019
Sanchez is the North Londoners’ most expensive signing of all time following his £42.5 million switch from Ajax two years ago.
But he might not hold that record for much longer, with Sky Sports claiming on Saturday that Tottenham remain confident of signing £70 million Giovani Lo Celso – who faced Sanchez this morning – from Real Betis.
