World-wide praise 18-years-old Pedri
World of football fans praise Spain wonder-kid Pedri González after displaying brilliant moves in Euro 2020
The 18-years-old player completed 100% of his passes against Italy’s Euro 2020 semifinal game.
His 31 successful passes are also more than any Italian player in the match during the first half.
Former England striker Gary Lineker waxed lyrical about the Barcelona midfielder just 25 minutes into the half.
“Pedri is soooo good,” Lineker tweeted.
“Absolute superstar in the making.
Shortly after, Rory Smith of the New York Times stated that he believes it is a matter of time before Pedri wins his first Ballon d’Or.
“How many Ballons d‘Or do we think Pedri wins, providing he stays away from major injuries?” Smith said.
“My instinct is three, but it could be as many as “All of Them.”
Pedri also received praise from former Argentine player Diego Latorre for his role in controlling the midfield in the first half.
“[Sergio] Busquets, Pedro, and Koke dominated the midfield and canceled out Italy’s supply lines,” Latorre said.
