Video: Spurs star shows off pace and crossing ability as he sets up equaliser on international duty

Sergio Reguilon has had a near-perfect start to life in North London as he seems to have settled into his new surroundings very quickly.

The left-back has established himself in Jose Mourinho’s first-choice eleven and has been praised by pundits for his performances.

The Tottenham defender has seemingly carried his club form into international duty after he received rave reviews for his display against the Netherlands on Wednesday (Marca and AS) after coming on for Jose Gaya, who went half injured just before the half-hour mark.

Reguilon was handed a start for Spain in their Nations League clash against Switzerland yesterday and he once again put in another fine display and was a constant menace to the Swiss defence with his overlaps down the left-hand side.

That is how Luis Enrique’s eventually got their late equaliser as Reguilon turned on the afterburners and put in a lovely cross for Villarreal striker Gerard Moreno to convert from close range.

While I knew that Reguilon possessed plenty of pace, energy and athleticism from watching him at Real Madrid and Sevilla, I seriously underestimated his technical quality on the ball. His crossing, in particular, has been quite exemplary.

He has already notched up three assists for Spurs in his short time at the club and it looks like he is going to set up a lot more goals over the course of the season due to his crossing ability with both feet.
