Barcelona starlet Gavi makes Spain history

Barcelona youngster Gavi has become the youngest player ever to appear in a senior Spain international after he was named in the starting team to face Italy. 

Spain faced the European Champions in the first UEFA Nations League semi-final played on Wednesday night at the iconic San Siro. 

Coach Luis Enrique decided to give the wonderkind his first international cap aged 17 years and 62 days, breaking a record set in 1936 by Angel Zubieta. 

Gavi has been one of the few shining lights in what has been a poor start to the season, which has put coach Ronald Koeman under pressure.
