Some Spurs fans react to Bryan Gil display for Spain U21s last night
A number of Spurs fans have lauded Bryan Gil after the Tottenham newcomer captained Spain’s Under-21s to victory last night.
Gil and his compatriots ran out 4-1 winners over Russia in their Under-21 Championship qualifying clash in Almendralejo.
The Spurs ace’s nation didn’t get off to the best start, however, as Russia opened the scoring on 10 minutes through Gamid Agalarov.
Spain didn’t need long to get back on level terms though, as Fernando Nino equalised three minutes later.
Gil gave the opposition defence a hard time in the first half, often linking up superbly with left-back Juan Miranda.
Both sides remained level going into the break, but Spain went ahead soon after the restart, and Gil provided the assist.
The Tottenham gem drove up the left flank and set up Yeremi Pino, who fired home a low effort from range.
Fer Nino then scored in the 54th minute to give Spain a good cushion, and Pino added a fourth on 85 minutes.
Gil came off in the 79th minute with some “physical discomfort” (MD) – he was down at one point, but was up and walking eventually.
However, Spain U21s coach Luis de la Fuente said after the game that Gil was “fine”, just tired.
Here is what Spurs fans made of Gil’s display:
Oh my god he’s acc a Cruyff regen— Josh (@thfc_joshh) September 3, 2021
One of my favourite things about him is he never looks like he’s struggling energy-wise, like he could come on in last 10 mins and create something when we need a winner or play a full game and still be sprinting👊🏾— Rhea Solarin (@RheaSolarin) September 4, 2021
I know right, so glad we got him.. and when he finds himself he will be unstoppable— SavageSpurs (@Savage_Spurs) September 3, 2021
This lad Bryan Gil looks like an absolute star already, there’s just something about him. He’s got that special “it factor”.— McLean 🏴 (@spursmaca) September 3, 2021
Said elsewhere, he is the closest I’ve seen to a young Ryan Giggs from 1990-92 and that Ryan Giggs was something special. pic.twitter.com/dWIVfnzD0d
Going to be a real star for us— Rhys Vella (@thfccoys13) September 3, 2021
He really is the best player on the pitch rn, we are lucky to have him— Kevin (@kvnrnst) September 3, 2021
Class players usually look unique and he certainly does. You can instantly tell it’s him on the ball.— SpursPapers (@Spurspapers) September 3, 2021
