The Spanish defender praises his countrymate Pablo Gavi after Spain qualified for the 2024 Euro Cup. Recently, they defeated Norway in the UEFA Euro Qualifiers, and the young midfielder, Gavi, was the only goal scorer in the match. Soon after they won the match, Dani Carvajal praised Barcelona’s midfielder by saying,
“There is nothing more to say. He is a gem.”
Before making this statement, he also mentioned that we should remember that Gavi is 19 years old and is a starter for Barcelona and Spain!
To be honest, Carvajal is right. Pablo Gavi is just 19 years old and plays a major role for both teams he represents. He has spent almost every minute on the pitch playing for Barcelona this season and has scored on several occasions.
