The Barcelona youngster has been in fine fettle for his club and country

Barcelona midfielder Gavi was the best player for Spain in their 1-0 win over Sweden that took the team to World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

Along with Sergio Busquets and Carlos Soler in midfield, the 17 year old constantly worked between the lines and found space behind the Scandinavian midfielders.

The Sevilla-born midfielder is becoming key for club and country and was given an ovation from the fans as he went off.

In the first half he had 95% pass accuracy, with 41 of his 43 attempted going to their receiver. He also made three dribbles and won five individual duals in the first half.
