Jamie Redknapp, who was working as a pundit for Sky Sports, said at half-time that the Spain international was “absolutely phenomenal.”

The former Liverpool star explained: “I want to see Gavi's birth certificate.

“You cannot be this good at 17. He's absolutely phenomenal! He's so talented. I'm just in awe of him, I love watching him play. He's got everything.”

Redknapp would double down on his comments by the time the full-time whistle had blown, saying Gavi can become a “superstar” if he follows his current trajectory.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “Gavi’s going to be a superstar if he carries on at this trajectory. He’s got everything, I loved watching him play tonight.”

Mikel Oyarzabal opened the scoring for Spain in the second half at the San Siro, but France answered back through Karim Benzema’s stunning equaliser.

Kylian Mbappe scored in the 80th minute to ensure that France lifted the Nations League title at the San Siro in Milan.

Spain boss Enrique will now turn his attention to La Roja’s forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Greece and Sweden.
