Manchester City’s Ferran Torres scored both of Spain’s goals in the first half, converting two Mikel Oyarzabal crosses.

Spain’s second came just minutes after Italy captain Leonardo Bonucci received a second yellow card.

Although Lorenzo Pellegrini pulled a goal back for the Azzurri, they couldn’t complete the fightback.

Now, Spain will go up against either France or Belgium in the final, which takes place on 10 October.

Gil came on with 18 minutes remaining and got involved right away, bringing down a long ball with a neat pass to a teammate.

He also came close to scoring a few minutes later when the ball fell to him, but the opposition defence blocked his effort.

Gil was constantly looking to make clever runs, mostly operating in the half-spaces around the box, but generally being involved across the entire forward line.

As per Whoscored, he weighed in with two shots and two crosses, took 23 touches of the ball, and made 15 passes with an 86.7 percent accuracy.

Overall, Gil looked comfortable in a Spain side brimming with exciting attacking talent.

Hopefully he can return to N17 with an international trophy to his name.
