VIDEO: The Inspiring BBC Documentary On Arsenal Sensation Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez

The BBC’s Football Focus recently released a fantastic and inspiring documentary based on the story of Arsenal sensation Alexis Sanchez.

From Devil’s Corner To Wembley Way documents the story of Alex Sanchez who overcame severe poverty and hardship to become the sensational player he is today.

Born and raised in a small town in North Chile called Tocopilla, Sanchez grew up in a town hemmed in by a desert and surrounded by various mines.

The local men in Tocopilla normally go on to become miners but from the outset, Alexis always had a different career in mind. Football.

His footballing talent was evident from a young age but nobody in the town of Tocopilla was aware of how big a star he was to become.

Hard-work, dedication and raw talent has got Sanchez to where he is today.

This documentary sees the crew of Football Focus travel to Tocopilla to meet the people that influenced the town’s most famous son. The love and admiration they have for Sanchez is passionately displayed by the locals.

However, the love is mutual. Sanchez tries to get back to Tocopilla as frequently as possible and give back to the town that made him who he is today.

An inspiring story that is most certainly worth a watch.
