Tottenham Hotspur fans were left delighted with England’s advance to the quarter-finals yesterday. Of course, a big Tottenham contingent helped. Harry Kane, Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose all played for England yesterday as they won on penalties.
However, they were not the only Tottenham players on display and arguably the best of the bunch was on the losing side.
Davinson Sanchez was in outstanding form for Colombia.
The Tottenham defender led the defensive line for the Colombia defence alongside the equally impressive Yerry Mina of Barcelona.
He produced two absolutely outstanding headed clearances to deny England two clear goal-scoring chances. It was an incredible display from the Tottenham youngster who had a great season last term.
Questions have been asked of the player. Every now and again he lapses and lets a player in behind. But in time he is going to be a world-class operator and last night he looked every bit the defender Spurs will hope he proves to be.
With Tottenham set to lose Toby Alderweireld, Sanchez will need to step up this season. If he can put in performances like this week-in and week-out for Tottenham then any doubters will soon be silenced.
Here are some of the best tweets from Tottenham fans…
I thought Davidson Sanchez was impeccable staying calm while other running riots he was motm. Looking forward next season he’s definitely going to get better

England praise aside….
Astandout mention has to go to Davinson Sanchez.
Was fantastic on the night and didn’t take part in any of the antics on the pitch.

Now is the right time to acknowledge what a fantastic defender our Davinson Sanchez looks to be growing in to.
Thought he was absolutely brilliant for #COL? ?and was desperately unlucky to be on the losing side.

Maybe we should sign….oh wait!#COYS
