Robert Sanchez

Robert Sanchez signed his first professional contract with Brighton and Hove Albion in June 2015 after joining the club two years prior from La Liga side Levante.

The goalkeeper, who was born in Cartagena, Spain, started his career playing in the Granotas' academy, before moving to England in 2013.

The Spaniard impressed during the 2016/17 Premier League 2 Division 2 season with a number of positive performances, and featured three times in the Checkatrade Trophy, making a string of fine saves against Coventry City in the knockout stages.

Sanchez then helped the Seagulls secure promotion to the Premier League 2 Division 1, via the play-offs, before moving to Forest Green Rovers on loan for the 2018/19 campaign.

He played 17 times for the Gloucestershire club, who reached the Sky Bet League Two play-offs, while also featuring five times for the Seagulls in the PL2 after returning from his loan spell.

The 24-year-old spent the 2019/20 season on loan with League One outfit Rochdale, featuring 35 times in league, Emirates FA Cup and Carabao Cup matches, before the season was curtailed due to the Covid-19 lockdown.

He signed a new three-year deal in February 2020, before going on to make his Premier League debut for Albion in a 2-1 defeat at Tottenham in November that year.

His form for Albion was rewarded with a new contract in February 2021, that runs until the end of the 2024/25 season.

Having become Albion's first choice goalkeeper in December of that year, he received his first call-up to the Spain senior squad in March 2021, before being named in his country's Euro 2020 squad.

He made his Spain debut in September 2021, coming on as a substitute in a 4-0 win over Georgia.
