Adama Traore Goes On Ridiculous Dribble Seconds After Coming On As A Substitute For Spain
| Last updated
Adama Traore wasted no time to display his incredible dribbling ability for Spain last night.
The Wolves winger was a second half substitute in the 1-0 UEFA Nations League win over Switzerland, achieved by a first half strike from Real Sociedad winger Mikel Oyarzabal.
Traore replaced Barcelona boy-wonder Ansu Fati in the 57th minute and his very first contribution was his game summed up in a sequence.
Seconds after entering the fray, the physical specimen of a footballer held off a defender and then embarrassed a further two opponents before playing the ball to Jose Gaya.
The wonderful run looks even better in slow motion where you see Traore's pace, power, agility and skill in full flow.
In just over half-an-hour on the pitch at the Alfredo Di Stefano stadium, Traore managed to complete four take-ons - more than any other player involved in the game.
It was just his second appearance for La Roja after committing himself to his birth country. The former Barcelona youth product was also called up by Mali, where his parents are from, but he stuck with Spain and made his debut against Portugal on Wednesday.
Manager Luis Enrique heaped praise on him and even claimed that he's so good that opposition sides will need two players to stop him.
"Adama has been Adama in his purest form," Enrique said after the Portugal draw, as per Birmingham Mail.
"That is what we want him to be, with his ability to beat opponents. He has played a killer pass to Dani Olmo that did not lead to a goal.
"With one player they will not to be able to stop him. They are going to have to use two players."
