We don’t mind a bit of physicality in football, but Alexis Sanchez took it to another level last night.
Chile faced off against James Rodriguez’s Colombia in the Copa America semi-finals, with the Chileans overcoming their opponents 2-0 after a two-hour weather delay to reach their second successive tournament final, having won the tournament last year.
However, it was not the result that caught the eye so much as Arsenal’s maestro sending Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez to bed and tucking him in during last night’s game.

Sanchez is known for his strength and pace and knocked aside the golden boy of the 2014 World Cup like he was competing against a toddler.
Although Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing the Real Madrid player, Rodriguez is going to want to stay away from the Premier League for a while after that one…
Too easy for Sanchez.
