Spurs send two-word message to Bryan Gil this afternoon

Spurs have wished Bryan Gil good luck as he prepares to lead Spain U21s out for their next European qualifier.

The Tottenham newcomer shone for La Rojita in their last game, a 4-1 win over Russia’s U21s.

Gil provided an assist for his teammate as Spain – who trailed early on – turned the game around.

The 20-year-old drove up the left flank and set up Yeremi Pino, who fired home a low effort from range.

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.

On Monday, Spain announced that Gil was the U21s’ new captain.

And now, De la Fuente’s charges take on Lithuania in their qualifier, a 4:30pm BST kickoff.

Gil is starting on the left side of attack, with Pino leading the line.

And Spurs tweeted “mucha suerte” – “good luck” – to their new starboy.

Gil has made three appearances for Spurs – two in the Europa Conference League and one in the Premier League.

He is such a promising player, and Tottenham fans will be excited to see what the future holds for the attacking ace.
