Spain: The emergence of 17-year-old Barcelona youngster Gavi, his country’s youngest ever international, highlighted a welcome youth trend in Luis Enrique’s side. “It’s not normal that he plays like that [at 17],” said the Spain head coach. “He’s a player with personality, enviable physical conditions and he plays our style of football. He plays like he’s at school or in his garden at home. It’s a pleasure to have a player with that quality and character with us. We can say that he’s the national team’s present, not [just] the future.”
Both goals in the 2-1 win over Italy were scored by Ferran Torres, just 21 years of age and beginning to establish himself as a young striker of real promise, whilst teenagers Ansu Fati and Pedri would be in this squad as well were it not for injury issues. The future looks bright for La Roja and a Nations League trophy could get this side into the winning habit.
