Dani Gomez stole the headlines as Spain beat the Czech Republic in a under-21 UEFA European Championships match. The striker only played 25 minutes, coming on as a substitute for Abel Ruiz, but it was more than enough time to score two goals and lead Spain to a 2-0 victory.
After the match, the former Real Madrid Castilla striker spoke to Onda Cero about his good performance. “I am very happy about the goals, but even more so for the victory. We can now focus on the passage to the next round,” Gomez explained.
Dani Gomez went on to discuss how the current tournament set up is different vs other years. “It is a little strange to be playing part of the tournament now, and the rest later. It’s not an excuse. We have to be better, but we can now focus on the quarter finals.”
Lastly, the player was asked about his season at Levante and his connection to Real Madrid. “I think it’s been a good year. It’s been a season of adaptation and I’ve learned a lot. I know how important it is to have patience in order to reach the top.”
“Real Madrid? They own 50% of my rights. If I do things well, they can buy me back. To be honest, I don’t think about these things. I take everything step by step,” he concluded.
Despite the question from Onda Cero, Dani Gomez has not performed at the same level as his counterpart, Jorge De Frutos. In 25 appearances for Levante, just over 1,000 minutes, the striker has only scored two goals and provided 1 assist. Despite his good form for the youth national team, it’s far too early to be thinking about a potential Real Madrid return.
