Chile star Alexis Sanchez has played down comparisons between himself and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Sanchez has caught the eye during the World Cup finals and came into the tournament with ringing endorsements.

The Udinese star has been linked with a move to some of Europe's biggest clubs, with Liverpool and AS Roma said to be keen on snapping up the winger.

And Sanchez, who is the youngest ever player to represent Chile, is said to have striking similarities to the Portuguese maestro Ronaldo.

But the 21-year-old said he was not like the Real Madrid man and insisted he wanted to make his own impact on this summer's tournament in South Africa.

"I think he's one of the best players in the world, but I'm Alexis Sanchez," he said.

"I'm not Cristiano and I shouldn't be compared to Cristiano.

"I want to make my mark in the World Cup."
