The wonder boy

He is known as El Nino Maravilla. The Wonder Boy. And boy, did Alexis Sanchez work wonders in his first game at the under-20 World Cup. Sanchez, who didn't play in the opening game against Canada, as he was serving a card suspension, sparked Chile to a 3-0 victory over Congo on Thursday at Commonwealth Stadium.
"There's not much left to say," said teammate Nicolas Medina. "That's what he does."
Sanchez had a golden opportunity in the opening half when Congo goalkeeper Destin Onka kicked a lazy clearing pass to the foot of the player. His strike sailed wide of the net, but Sanchez was much surer of foot in the second half. So were his teammates.
"We talked about how we can play, how many tools we have," said Carlos Carmona of the turnaround, "and we were much better in the second half. We were more relaxed."
"We had control of the ball and it was much easier," said Carmona. Chile will now travel to Toronto to play Austria. Congo meets Canada at Commonwealth Stadium on Sunday.
