The 22-year-old has been a crucial member of Atletico’s side which has constantly achieved success in the Champions League, and started the 2016 final against city rivals Real.
So, it’s no real surprise that he’s dominating a junior tournament, with his third, fourth and fifth goals against Italy this evening making him the competition’s outright top-scorer with five in total.
The first and third strikes were impressive in terms of control and precision, but the second was just an out-and-out left-footed rocket:
