Gavi? It’s wonderful for him. He played this semi-final against Italy with a lot of quality,” France head coach Didier Deschamps told the media ahead of the Nations League final.
“He has only had a few matches with Barca in La Liga. It’s supposed to be the start of a long and successful career for him,” he added.
Indeed, the 17-year-old has made just 7 appearances for Blaugrana’s first team so far.
Gavi impressed everyone against Italy and is expected to start on Sunday too. Spain will take on France in the Nations League final at 20:45
