It would take a miracle for Alexis Sanchez to revive his Manchester United career at this point, but he remains a key man for Chile.

The forward lacks the confidence of belief he once had when at Old Trafford but those issues disappear for Chile.

He didn’t play as vital a role as in previous games here but was still confident enough to step up and score the decisive penalty in the shootout.

This tournament is helping to restore some of the old Sanchez. Whether he can carry it on at United remains to be seen.
