The match against Albania in the third round of the group stage of Euro 2024 did not matter for Spain. "Furia Roja" early decided the issue of playoffs, so against a modest opponent used reserve players. However, this did not prevent Spain from winning: the only goal in the opening game was scored by Ferran Torres.

However, according to the Dailysports editorial board, it wasn't Torres who was the best player of the match, but the author of the assist - Dani Olmo. The 26-year-old RB Leipzig midfielder was one of the most notable players on the pitch today. He was credited with 83% passing accuracy, 2 key passes, perfect long passes (5/5), one created great chance, three successful dribbles and 7/9 won fights on the ground and in the air. It was a near perfect match from the player.

Curiously, Olmo had only played 32 minutes in his previous two matches at this Euro, when he took the field against Croatia in the first round. He missed the match against Italy in the second round. Perhaps, with his performance against Albania, Dani will draw the attention of the head coach.
