France came from behind after Oyarzabal’s goal to win the Nations League final against Spain. Luis Enrique’s side played a good game, but Karim Benzema’s wonder goal and a controversial goal from Kylian Mbappe gave the trophy to Didier Deschamps’ side.
After the match, UEFA wanted to recognize Busquets’ work and great performances with ‘la Roja’ in the final phase of the tournament. For this reason, the organization awarded him the prize for the best player of the competition. An award that had a bittersweet taste due to the fact that he did not come out on top.
In addition, the Barcelona midfielder entered the golden pages of the national team by becoming the fourth Spanish player with the most caps, with a total of 131. He is ahead of Xavi Hernandez (133), Casillas (167) and Sergio Ramos (180).
The next matches for the Iberian national team will take place during the next international break in November. Luis Enrique will play against Greece and Sweden, two very important matches for the qualification to the World Cup in Qatar 2022.
