EUROS 2020: Barcelona Star Wins Young Player Of The Tournament Award

The UEFA team's of technical observers have named Spanish youngster, Pedri Gonzalez as the best young player of the tournament following his good performances in the competition.

The 18-year-old inclusion in the Spain squad sparked reactions at the beginning as he proved all of his doubters wrong.

Pedri's style of play has been compared to that of Andres Iniesta as both players share similar qualities in the way they use the ball.

Pedri started all of Spain's six games at the Euros and his performance was good. Meanwhile, he only got substituted two times all through Spain's stay at the Euros.

However, the Barcelona midfielder has been named by UEFA as the youngest best player of the tournament despite leaving the Competition with Spain in the semi-finals stage when they lost on penalties to Italy.

Spain head coach Luiz Enrique on Pedri said the youngster has done what no one has done before, something that even Andrea Iniesta couldn't achieve in his time.
