Pedri dropped a 'generational' performance for Spain against Slovakia, starring in his side's emphatic victory at Euro 2020.
Pedri, still only 18, shone on the international stage as La Roja thrashed Slovakia 5-0 on Wednesday.
The Barcelona superstar was majestic in midfield, creating a host of chances for his teammates - having a say in three of Spain's goals.
He played a big role in Aymeric Laporte, Pablo Sarabia and Ferran Torres' goals, making key passes in the build-up.
The youngster showed off his composure, footwork and skill as he absolutely ran the midfield.
Pedri looked mature beyond his tender years and has an extremely bright future ahead of him.
Twitter user @FDJChief shared a compilation of his performance and it makes for sensational viewing.

It's really hard to believe this guy is only 18 years old. In his first major tournament with Spain's first team he's already playing like a veteran. Generational :dizzy:
Fans online loved Pedri's international outing.
One tweeted: "What a player, he's going to be the best in history."
A second wrote: "Those pre assist passes from him for first 3 goals were absolutely amazing. What a player we have."
A third added: "Leading Spain's midfield at the age of 18. Truly generational."

Nah man Pedri is my man of the match, 3 pre- assist involved in 3 of Spain's 4 goals he's only just 18- Peplista♟ (@sucre_ade) June 23, 2021
Pedri has drawn some lofty comparisons to Barca and Spain legend Andres Iniesta, but Luis Enrique has pumped the breaks on that thought.
Speaking prior to the tournament, he said: "Pedri and Iniesta are two different players. Pedri must be allowed to continue making mistakes and getting everything right.
"He is very humble and works and I have known him from his time in the Under-21 team, but they are two different players."
