Busquets gifts Star of the Match vs Slovakia prize to his sons, warmly hugs them

Sergio Busquets won the Star of the Match award in the Spain-Slovakia game and later gifted it to his two sons, hugging them.

This was quite an emotional occasion for Spain's captain who missed the first two Euro 2020 games through the coronavirus.

In his post-match interview, the 32-year-old even cried, emphasising how hard it was for the team to begin the tournament amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

Against Slovakia, Busquets recorded 2 key passes and looked dominant in the midfield.


Luis Enrique explains why many people 'can't understand Busquets'

"Busquets' game [against Slovakia] was a guide of how to play as a pivot, in defence and attack. He is a player who many people do not understand, after so many years of being used to watching him, but he is a unique player, and a guarantee," Luis Enrique has told the media after Spain's 5-0 win over Slovakia.

Sergio Busquets produced an exceptional performance on Wednesday, providing a few key passes and being solid at the back.

This was also his first appearance after recovering from the coronavirus.
