The Spanish press were rather complimentary of Sergio Reguilon’s performance in Spain’s 1-1 draw against the Netherlands on Wednesday.

Spain boss Luis Enrique opted to start with Valencia left-back Jose Gaya ahead of the Tottenham man but the 25-year-old had to be withdrawn before the half-hour mark due to an injury, with Reguilon taking his place.

The former Real Madrid man has been in terrific form for Spurs this season, with some of his performances for the North Londoners earning rave reviews recently.

It looks as though the 23-year-old has now carried that form into the international break, with reports back in his home country praising the Spurs man for the energy and attacking intent he showed.

Marca even rated Reguilon as Spain’s best player on the night and wrote about his performance: “Came on for the injured Gaya.

“Always an option down the left side in attack. Committed a foul on the edge of the box which handed him a yellow.”

AS were slightly more measured in the assessment as they gave the left-back 6/10 and wrote: “Came on for the injured Gayà. Withstood the attacks of the Dutch well, always a threat going forward. Had to deal with second-half changes made by the Netherlands.”
