After Spain was eliminated on penalties by Italy at Euro 2020, manager Luis Enrique praised Pedri's play.
“Have you seen the tournament that Pedri has played? I’ve never seen an 18-year-old kid play like I’ve seen Pedri play in this tournament, not even Andrés Iniesta. It’s crazy.”
Pedri had a superb tournament, even registering a 100% pass completion vs the Italians last night, only emphasizing his quality despite not noting down any assists or goals.
Following a 1-1 draw over 120 minutes, Italy defeated Spain 4-2 on penalties at Wembley. Pedri was superb for La Roja on the night, alongside Sergio Busquets and Dani Olmo, but it wasn't to be for Luis Enrique's side.
In Sunday's final, Italy will meet the winner of England vs. Denmark.
