Alexis Sanchez may be running the show at Arsenal at the moment after scoring six goals in eight days, but, as hard as it might be to believe, he was just a nipper one day playing against some of the greats.

In March 2006, Universidad Catolica de Chile played the national team and a young Alexis got the chance to play against a not-so-young Maradona.

Chile won the match 2-0.
