Spanish outlet Sport gave Tottenham Hotspur left-back Sergio Reguilon a low rating of 4/10 for his performance during Spain’s 2-0 win over Kosovo on Wednesday night.
Reguilon was not initially included in the squad but he received a late call-up due to Valencia left-back Jose Gaya picking up an injury during Spain’s 4-0 win over Georgia.
It was only the left-back’s sixth game in a Spain shirt as Reguilon was not called up to the squad for the Euro 2020 tournament despite some good performances for Spurs last season.
At only 24-years old, Nuno will be hoping he can coach some of Reguilon’s defensive lapses out of him, with the left-back having played every minute of Spurs’ perfect start to the Premier League campaign without conceding a single goal.
Reguilon, however, clearly did not have his best showing against Kosovo. Sport gave his performance a 4/10 and gave this context to justify the rating:
“Neither one nor the other.
“He lacked the courage to overwhelm Kosovo by the band and greater forcefulness to bet on the defence without fissures. His input was scant, inconsistent, and unproductive.”
Reguilon can have these games – I believe he is a very hot and cold kind of player. We saw this last season with his huge dip in form towards the end of the campaign.
Having been given a lifeline through Gaya’s injury, he will be frustrated he didn’t grab the chance as he could have.
