Is he one of the world’s greatest already?

Isco is putting on a show every time he wars Spain’s shirt and yesterday was no different. The Spanish midfielder led the national team to an easy win against Albania and the highlight reel just shows what kind of player he is.

Isco is arguably the most crucial player for Spain attacking-wise as he also scored a brace in the key match against Italy. It’s clear that he’s comfortable playing in Julen Lopetegi’s system and it will be interesting to see what he can do in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The playmaker just signed a contract extension with Real Madrid and e’ll be with the club until the summer of 2022. He’s an undisputed starter for Madrid now that Gareth Bale is injured but his role could change once the BBC of Benzema, Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to play. Either way, he’s still 25 so he might still have potential to improve.
