Deulofeu skippers Spain U21s to another win

07/10/2015  6 Comments  [Jump to last]
Gerard Deulofeu laid on two goals in Spain U21s' 5-2 win World Cup qualifying over Georgia.

The Everton winger was named as captain again and he helped his country to another handsome win in Tbilisi.

His former Barcelona team-mate Munir El Haddadi scored twice, with Marco Asensio, Borja and Dani Ceballos rounding out the scoring for Spain while Tsintsadze and Lobzhanidze grabbed the goals for the hosts.

Good to see him back on song after a poor derby display. He will become an important player for us

Agreed James, Gerry is a fantastic talent but he is young; he can be forgiven for shrinking in a derby as it's happened to many players on both sides.

I'd like to see us use Gerry's influence in the Spanish Under-21 squad to help us sneakily bring in one or two other talented Spaniards. Gerry's price is a bargain and I'm sure there must be a couple of others about.

He's got to be able to perform in the games against sterner opposition though. There's no doubt the lad's got all the skills in his locker but he has to learn to not let his head drop when things don't go right, which is exactly what happened in the derby.

Can't be bad having him captaining the U21s again. More and more he is looking like a very good signing.

Still young and lays at least a couple of good chances on a plate every game; now he is ours for keeps.

I'd love this season to see him as our supersub in the second half of a game, like the baggies used to use Lukaku, next season. 90 minutes of terror for any defence. Whisper it, but shades of Ronaldo (the non-Brazilian one) with this kid.

I agree Brian, but in all fairness to Gerri he did set up our only goal despite being poor during the derby.

Wingers are a frustrating bunch of players at the best of times, hopefully Gerri's consistency levels will go up throughout the season.

There's no doubt that to date he's been more effective as either an impact sub or against lesser teams, I for one thought he would have terrorised Moreno but sadly he did not.

Well done, Gerry... this will teach him team play.
