Sergio Busquets has been named 2021 UEFA Nations League Player of the Finals

Sergio Busquets of Spain has been named Hisense Player of the Finals following the UEFA Nations League final at Milan's San Siro.

Robbie Keane, UEFA Technical Observer: "He controlled both games, dictated the play and made the players around him better."

The Spain captain dominated the midfield battle in his side's semi-final victory against Italy, shielding the defence and spreading passes around – prompting Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport to hail him as a "maestro". He was similarly important in the final versus France, setting up Mikel Oyarzabal's opening goal before Les Bleus fought back to clinch the trophy.
