VIDEO: Cagliari Vs. Udinese: Alexis Sanchez Is Simply Super

There's a reason that more or less every single major team are after Udinese winger Alexis Sanchez. After starring for Chile in the World Cup, the 22 year-old may well be the Serie A's top player this season, capable of blowing defenses apart almost at will with a stunning combination of pace, guide, and finishing ability. He's not quite Italy's answer to Messi just yet, but the very fact that he's on the fringes of that conversation is testament to just how good the little forward might someday be. Oh, you want evidence?

It's not often you see someone do so many stepovers on the run that a centreback opts to stare stare at their own feet and fall over in fear, and it's even rarer that you see a forward pick the ball 20 yards inside his own half and roll it past the keeper eight(!) seconds later, but that's Sancehz for you. The goal took Udinese to 2-0 over Cagliari (it's now 4-0 after Antonio di Natale smacked in another two past a rather beleaguered Michael Agazzi in Cagliari's net. Udinese are really making a bid for the Champions League spots in the Serie A now, and Sanchez's summer price is rising to ludicrous levels.
