Goal.com have revealed that Tottenham winger, Bryan Gil has been called up to the senior Spain squad after an injury to Atletico Madrid midfielder, Marcos Llorente.

Gil is thought of quite highly back in Spain, with the 20-year-old already having won six senior caps for the national side after making his debut back in March.

The winger was not part of Luis Enrique’s squad for this summer’s European Championship but he did feature in the Tokyo Olympics for Spain, playing a starring role in his side’s silver medal win.

Gil has also made a promising start to life in North London, demonstrating his guile and dribbling ability as an impact substitute on several occasions.

The former Sevilla youngster has now been rewarded by a call up to the Spain squad for their Nations League semifinal against Italy this week. He was originally named by Luis De la Fuente in the U21 team but the injury to Llorente has seen him upgraded.

Gil will be joined in the squad by his Tottenham teammate, Sergio Reguilon.

Spurs Web Opinion

I doubt if Gil will get any minutes against Italy but the experience of brushing shoulders with the top players in the squad could do wonders for confidence. The 20-year-old has the talent to become a fixture in Tottenham’s starling eleven and the Spain squad by the end of the season.
