Rodriguez escapes red for horror tackle on Sanchez (video)

James Rodriguez was perhaps somewhat lucky to stay on the field as Colombia took on Chile in their 2022 World Cup qualifier on Tuesday evening after a horror tackle on Alexis Sanchez.

The two sides played out a 2-2 draw at the Estadio Nacional Julio Martinez Pradanos in Santiago de Chile, with Radamel Falcao bagging a last minute equaliser for the Colombians.

Two of the most talented players on the pitch came together in a rather ugly moment as James came in on Alexis and hit the Chilean on the ankle with his studs.

It could well have been a red card, though VAR never intervened and referee Dario Herrera gave the Everton playmaker a yellow card which sparked controversy after the game.
