In addition to his contributions at the club level, Sanchez has also made two appearances for the Spanish national team, showcasing his prowess on the international stage.

Despite his previous prominence, Sanchez has recently found himself slipping down the pecking order at Brighton. The emergence of Jason Steele and the arrival of newcomer Bart Verbruggen have impacted his position within the team.
