Sergio Reguilon earned rave reviews after his performance in Spain’s 1-1 draw against the Netherlands on Wednesday.
The Tottenham left-back replaced the injured Jose Gaya just before the half-hour mark in that game, with Marca voting him the best player on the pitch.
On the back of his performance against the Dutch, Reguilon was handed a start by Luis Enrique for the Nations League clash against Switzerland on Saturday and the left-back once again received praise for his showing.
The 23-year-old was a constant threat against the Swiss defence due to his willingness to get up the pitch and support the attack.
Spain went 1-0 down to a Remo Freuler strike in the 26th minute and had to wait until the 89th minute for their equaliser, which was created by Reguilon.
The Spurs man showed his searing pace to get to the byline before producing an inch-perfect cross for Gerard Moreno to sweep home the equaliser.
Marca wrote this about the Tottenham defender’s performance against the Swiss: “Fantastic assistance to Gerard Moreno. Stepping on the opposite field and showing his speed tip.
“Always giving options in attack for his band. The goal came from his side and caught him in advanced positions. Very attentive beyond that action. The ‘3’ is already yours.”
AS described Reguilon’s assist as “a dagger from the left-wing.”
Based on these assessments, it looks as though the Spurs man may well be making case for himself as Spain’s starting left-back from now on.
