Sergio Busquets has been chosen as Nations League MVP, despite the fact that Spain lost in the final against France. The midfielder, who has received some criticism at Barça, has proven himself in this last square with the national team.
The player has been a fixture for Luis Enrique in both games: in the victory against Italy and in the defeat against France. In both meetings he was at a formidable level. Busquets felt very comfortable in the ecosystem of the national team. A team that puts more pressure on Barcelona and where it can play more advanced.
After the final, Busquets regretted the arbitration decision of do not report offside on Mbappé’s goal. The goal that ultimately decided the final. “It’s a shame, isn’t it? We deserved not to lose, but in two games that were practically marked out… The second seemed to us to be out of the game. “
Busquets played his 131st game for the Spanish team today. A number that equals Iniesta as the fourth player with the most caps for the national team. “We think we threw the line well and Mbappé was offside, but the referee said Eric had played the ball. ”
