Barcelona prodigy Gavi produced a spectacular finish to make it 5-0 for Spain in their FIFA World Cup 2022 opener against Costa Rica.

Playing in his first-ever World Cup match, the 18-year-old was absolutely bossing the game from the kickoff and had played a role in Dani Olmo’s opening goal as well as Ferran Torres’ second strike in the second period.

And the young midfielder finally got his name on the scoresheet around the 75th-minute mark when he volleyed home a delightful chipped pass from Atletico Madrid striker Alvaro Morata from the edge of the box.

Just 18 years of age, Gavi showcased great awareness and technical ability for his goal – his third in Spain colours, which comes days after he had found the back of the net in the friendly win against Jordan.

One of the five Barcelona players who started the game for La Roja, the Golden Boy 2022 Award winner displayed why he is held in such high regard. Undoubtedly, he will have a key role to play for the Spanish national team going forward in the tournament.
