Spain manager Luis Enrique hailed Pedri’s performance at Euro 2020 after his side was knocked out by Italy on penalties.
“Have you seen the tournament that Pedri has played? I’ve never seen an 18-year-old kid play like I’ve seen Pedri play in this tournament, not even Andrés Iniesta. It’s crazy.”
Italy beat Spain 4-2 on penalties at Wembley after the sides played out a 1-1 draw over 120 minutes. Alongside Sergio Busquets and Dani Olmo, Pedri was outstanding for La Roja on the night, but it wasn’t to be for Luis Enrique’s side.
Italy now face the winner of England versus Denmark in Sunday’s final.
