Davinson Sanchez produced an unbelievable tackle to help Colombia see off Senegal and book their place in the World Cup knockout stages.

Colombia’s 1-0 victory saw them finish top of Group H – they will face England in the Round of 16.

With the game still goalless, Senegal were awarded a penalty when Sanchez appeared to foul Liverpool winger Sadio Mane in the box.

However, the decision was referred to VAR and the penalty was struck off.

And as replays show, Sanchez in fact made a brilliant last-ditch tackle on Mane.

There were shades of Ledley King on Arjen Robben. Watch it below.
