With Saúl Ñíguez Purring Like This Back Spain For Euro Glory

Spain head into this Friday’s Under-21 European Championships showdown against Germany with one man at the centre of their run to the final: none other than Atletico Madrid’s Saúl Ñíguez.

At first glance, the 22-year-old midfielder is a typical silky and slick Spanish schemer, but he possess an absolute sledgehammer of a right foot, as Italian goalie Gianluigi Donnarumma found out on Tuesday night as he watched on helplessly as Ñíguez helped himself to a glorious hat-trick – including one particularly delicious finish.

In total, Ñíguez now has five goals to his name throughout the junior tournament, and is the competition’s top-scorer, and with their key-man in this sort of form, it’s pretty hard to see past Spain lifting the trophy.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the guys at 188Bet make the Spanish big favourites to defeat Stefan Kuntz’s men and despite possessing players like Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio and Barcelona’s Denis Suarez, a lot of their confidence has to be attributed to the blistering form of Ñíguez.

Remarkably, Ñíguez has spent most of the last two years playing with a catheter due to a severe bladder problem and he’s still managed to become one of the continent’s most exciting prospects.

He’s already played in a Champions League final, and it shouldn’t be too long before he inevitably ends up with a true superpower of European club football.

An Under-21 European Championship final is nothing to him – if you want our advice, back Ñíguez to score and a Spanish triumph on Friday night with 188Bet.
