Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta scored his first goal for Spain ever in the Euro 2020 clash with Croatia as he sets Spain record in the process.
Hence, according to OptaJoe, this means that at the age of 31 years and 304 days, the Chelsea skipper has become Spain’s oldest goalscorer ever in the European Championships.
Given that before the Euros, the right-back had not received a Spain call-up since November 2018, this was undoubtedly a special moment for Dave.
Cesar’s header gave his team a 2-1 lead but the game was far from over, with La Furia Roja prevailing 5-3 after the extra time in the end.
In the quarterfinal, Spain will face Switzerland who knocked out N’Golo Kante, Olivier Giroud, and the rest of the French team in the penalty shootout after a dramatic 3-3 draw in regular time.
Although no Chelsea star is in the Swiss side, we believe Azpi & co would advance to the semis, where they would likely face Jorginho and Emerson’s Italy.
