Some Arsenal fans 'refuse to believe' ex-player's 'crazy' performance in Olympic opener
Dani Ceballos might have only played the first half of the 2020 Olympics opener, but the Real Madrid star left an impact.
The midfielder, who took the armband for La Roja, was electric in the opening 45 minutes.
Ceballos was close to assisting Marco Asensio as well as scoring one himself when his effort from outside the area crashed off the post.
However, his night came to a painful end as Ceballos was forced off after a nasty foul forced the 24-year-old off the pitch in stoppage time.
Indeed, the midfielder’s performance was a far cry from what Arsenal fans had seen over the past two years.
Ceballos had a mixed spell with the Gunners. The former Real Betis playmaker had some good spells with the north London side. As well moments to forget.
However, Arsenal fans on social media today were full of praise for Ceballos as he ran the show for Spain in the first half against Egypt.
Here’s what some fans had to say about Dani Ceballos in the Olympics opener against the African nation on Twitter…
