Tottenham’s £42m New Boy Shares Training Picture Ahead Of Crunch World Cup 2018 Qualifier

Published

on

Davinson Sanchez might have been a costly purchase for Tottenham at the time but the Colombian has fit into the side like a glove. The former Ajax man has formed a decent enough partnership with Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld at the back and could turn out to be a great acquisition, given his age and ability.

The 21-year-old cost us a reported £42m but that is a punt worth taking in this day and age of football. Even though Sanchez is away on international duty, the training and dedication does not stop as he looks to take his side into the World Cup in 2018.

The South American qualifiers are extremely competitive and only Brazil have booked their tickets to Russia in 2018. There are 5 teams who are just separated by 4 points and the top four make it to the World Cup automatically. Colombia are sitting 3rd behind Uruguay and the major talking point is Argentina looking close to missing out, as they are 5th in the standings.

Sanchez’s team does look likely to make it through as they play Paraguay, who are in 7th place in the standings, and then have a tougher match travelling to Peru, who are in 4th place. Peru have been the surprise package of the qualifiers and it will be a real test for the Colombians should they falter against Paraguay.

Sanchez did share an image of him training, on Twitter, and it seems like he is in great form for club and country. While Spurs have found their shooting boots and are back to defending well, Sanchez, in the last game against Brazil, kept Neymar quiet.

Colombia certainly have got their act together in the qualifiers and are unbeaten in their last 4 games, which should be good news for Sanchez and the rest of his team.

Hopefully, the youngster returns from his national duty without picking up an injury and helps us chase down the Manchester sides in the Premier League table. We are already 5 points behind the pair and our next tie is against Bournemouth at Wembley.
