The Real Sociedad starlet was a constant threat throughout the Group E encounter and held his own against experience centre-back Aymeric Laporte.

A video of his incredible showing for Sweden has since surfaced online and it proves he's a superstar in the making.

Needless to say, Isak's outing sent social media into overdrive with some fans comparing him to Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.

One tweeted: "Unbelievably good. If this is not a one-off performance then he has a great future in football."

A second tweeted: "When Isak fills out physically, it's over for every defense."

A third added: "Really great CF in the making, but just overlooked because of Haaland and Mbappe putting up crazy numbers playing in a better team arguably!"

Rio Ferdinand also heaped big praise on the exciting talent who has been linked with a move to Arsenal and Chelsea this summer.

"This kid, Isak, he was a problem today for the defenders in the Spain team," said the former Manchester United defender.

"He was a nuisance. He showed today why he's got Young Player of the Year in La Liga. He was the outlet.

"We were surprised, really, when he got brought off - he must be thinking about the coming games or something like that."

Sweden resume their Euro 2020 campaign against Slovakia on Friday before taking on Poland next Wednesday.
