He now plies his trade in France for Marseille after winning a Serie A title with Inter Milan.

But Sanchez remains a key player for his country.

The ace won his 153rd international cap for Chile in Monday’s friendly game against Paraguay.

And he scored his 51st goal with 15 minutes left to level the score at 2-2.


But Sanchez wasn’t finished yet as he landed a winner for Chile in the 92nd minute.

Sanchez fired in a corner as time ticked down to the final whistle.

And somehow the ball ended up in the back of the net at the near post, sparking wild celebrations.

Replays showed that Paraguay goalkeeper Antony Silva had actually palmed the ball straight into his own net when trying to punch what should have been a routine save away.

And TV viewers were left puzzled by his horrendous mistake, which later went down as an own-goal.

One said: “I didn’t understand Alexis’ shot but even less what Silva did.”

Another declared: “He fished for the ball and caused the goalie to make an error, the quality of Sanchez.”

One asked: “How on earth has that gone in?”

Another added: “The best player Chile has ever produced.”
