Chelsea star Marcos Alonso helped his country Spain qualify for the Nations League final on Wednesday night – and some Blues fans on Twitter were left amazed by his display.
Spain beat Italy 2-1 in the Nations League semi-final, which went someway to avenging their summer defeat to them in the European Championship semi-final.
It was fourth international cap for Marcos Alonso and the first time the 30-year-old full-back had featured for his country since 2018, so it’s extremely impressive how effortlessly he slotted into the starting line-up.
The 30-year-old attacked with real intent for a Spain side that dominated the ball and he had two separate attempts at goal denied by goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
He looked a major creative threat, which isn’t a surprise given he’s played the most key passes in the entire Chelsea squad this season.
A selection of Blues supporters on social media believe Alonso was one of the standout players on the pitch in the Nations League.
Here are Chelsea fans praising Marcos Alonso:
However, Alonso along with Chelsea captain and Spain right-back Cesar Azpilicueta, now have a final to look forward to against either France or Belgium.
