'The same bracket as Mbappe & Dembele - Twitter Reacts to Marco Asensio’s hat trick

Goal.com logo Goal.com 17-06-2017

Youth tournaments can be where the next generation lay markers for their eventual success. Saturday, Marco Asensio laid down a huge one, in the form of a hat-trick, with some spectacular finishes to boot.

The Real Madrid midfielder, who scored three goals in 23 appearances for the club this season in La Liga, picked up goals in the 16th, 54th, and 72nd minutes of Spain’s 5-0 win over Macedonia in the UEFA Under-21 tournament.

The highlight of the evening was a beautiful curling shot from distance that just tucked under the crossbar in the top corner.

It was the type of performance that left Real Madrid fans on twitter salivating for more, and at least one person to lament Barcelona’s failure to land the 21-year-old Asensio’s signature.

Asensio is such a huge talent, man. With Zidane's guidance he's destined for greatness. Absolutely massive future ahead of him

Marco Asensio should be mentioned in the same bracket as Mbappé & Dembélé as the best young talents in football - he's incredibly gifted.

Asensio, Mbappe, Donnarumma & Dembele is the holy quadruple of world football talents. No debate in my else. 5th player is arguable.
