Spain: The emergence of 17-year-old Barcelona teenager Gavi, his country's youngest ever international, reinforced Luis Enrique's side's welcome youth trend. "It's not usual for a 17-year-old to play like that," Spain's head coach said. "He's a player with a lot of personality, exceptional physical abilities, and he plays football in our way. He pretends to be at school or in his backyard garden. It's great to have a guy of that caliber and character on our team. He is the national team's present, not simply its future, as we can see."
Ferran Torres, who is only 21 years old and is already establishing himself as a promising young striker, scored both goals in the 2-1 win over Italy, while teenagers Ansu Fati and Pedri would also be in this team if not for injury concerns. La Roja has a bright future ahead of them, and a Nations League title might kickstart their winning streak.
France: The front three of Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, and Karim Benzema clicked in a huge game to help France fightback from a two-goal deficit against Belgium on Wednesday. The latter two scored, while the former gained a penalty, as France unleashed an excellent attacking display that boss Didier Deschamps rarely sees.
The big question moving into the final is whether the second half was an exception caused by circumstances (France had a two-goal deficit to overcome) or if Deschamps' high-pressing, the front-footed recipe could be replicated. The way his team set up against a Spain team that is content to dominate possession should reveal a lot about how Les Bleus will approach major games in the future.
Spain's dominance over Italy was so spectacular that there's little reason to believe they won't do it again against a France team that was second best for at least half of their semifinal. Spain 2, France 1 (PICK)
