Gavi in action for Spain vs Sweden

Gavi was sublime once again as Spain secured their progression to the 2022 World Cup finals on Sunday evening.

The Barcelona midfielder was named in the starting lineup for his country's crucial match against Sweden.

Spain knew they would qualify for next year's tournament in Qatar if they avoided defeat in front of their own fans.

And they managed to get what they needed as they won 1-0. Alvaro Morata netted the all-important goal with four minutes of normal time remaining.

Gavi was immense during his 89 minutes on the pitch.

The youngster, just 17 years old, proved once again why he's so highly regarded.
