Fans laud Tottenham star Bryan Gil on Twitter after Spain cameo
A number of fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Bryan Gil after the Tottenham Hotspur star came on during the second-half of Spain’s Nations League win over Italy.
Luis Enrique’s men are through to the final after a 2-1 victory in Milan. Ferran Torres scored twice for the visitors in the first-half in San Siro to secure their spot against either France or Belgium.
Gil was brought on with 18 minutes remaining. And the 20-year-old was immediately into the action, bringing down a long ball with a nice pass to a teammate.
He also came close to scoring a few minutes later. A Spain counter attack saw Gianluigi Donnarumma tested. When the ball fell to Gil, his attempt was then blocked.
He made some nice bursts into the box and certainly did not look out of place in a Spain side full of exciting, young players boasting creativity and technical ability in abundance.
Gil was continually looking to make clever runs, predominantly operating in the half spaces around the penalty box, but buzzing all across the forward line.
A number of fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Gil’s cameo, including some rival supporters.

Bryan Gil has had some lovely touches & very unlucky not to have scored here.

Spain are sorted for the next decade when it comes to attacking options. Fati, Torres and Gil are going to be so so good.
