Joselu was the star for Spain last night in a high-pressure UEFA Nations League semifinal game.

Going up against Italy, La Roja got an early lead through Yeremy Pino. However, it did not take Italy more than eight minutes to strike the equaliser and set up a nervy affair.

The Real Madrid-linked striker only came on in the 84th minute on the night. Four minutes later, he was celebrating Spain’s winning goal that he emphatically put past Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Joselu spoke to the media earlier today as Spain’s hero in the Nations League, as revealed by MARCA. The questions, quite naturally, drifted the topic of conversation to his potential move to Los Blancos to which he replied,

“About the rumours, now I want to focus here, we’ll talk when the international break is over from Monday. Let’s see what happens. Yesterday was a very beautiful day.”

Despite coming from a relegated Espanyol side, the Spanish striker elaborated on what he could bring to the table for the men in white if the move went through. After all, he was La Liga’s third-highest goalscorer last season.

“Yes, I think I can be a reference in terms of work. I have played in the three best leagues in the world and I have enjoyed them all. La Liga suits a lot to my game. In the end, age is a number.”

Spain take on Croatia in the final of the Nations League this weekend. Joselu will thus go up against a legend of the game who could well be his teammate next season in Luka Modric. Speaking about the Croatian captain, he has only words of praise.

“It’s another example of an athlete. A player who, with his age, has a lot of ambition. He is an example for all the children and for all those people. Modric has demonstrated values in football that represent us all.”

Jude Bellingham’s Euro 2024 campaign came to a heartbreaking end as England slumped to a 2-1 defeat against Spain in the final.

Bellingham was one of the better players for England in what was a hard-fought affair at the Olympiastadion. However, the Real Madrid star was not able to get his team over the line, with England conceding a late winner from Mikel Oyarzabal.

Bellingham was visibly disappointed at the result and was seen storming off the pitch and even kicking a drinks cooler in frustration.

Speaking to a press after the defeat, Bellingham expressed his thoughts, calling it a ‘heartbreaking result’.

“We all wanted nothing more than to make history and make people of England proud but we didn’t deliver. Going forward we will analyze it, it’s a young group,” he said (h/t Daily Mail).

Bellingham was indeed one of the more important players for an England side, which was criticised by many for their underwhelming performances

However, the Real Madrid star also looked at the positive. “It’s disappointing because we have to deliver at some point but there are things we can take from this,” he said.

“As a team, we will take the positives and negatives and we have to find a way to get it over the line,” the midfielder added.

While the defeat to Spain was certainly a blow for young Bellingham, the Englishman can hold his head up high, as he is coming on the back of a tremendous campaign that saw him secure the La Liga and the Champions League title.

For now, Bellingham will be looking forward to an extended summer break, before shifting his focus back to Real Madrid ahead of the new season.
