The captain is already the tenth top scorer of the national team and has not missed the penalty spot for more than a year.
The captain has reached this record with the national team after achieving eight goals in his last nine games; a scorer series that began on September 11, 2018 against Croatia. He then saw the door again in the friendly against Wales and in the League of Nations meetings against England and, again, Croatia.
The last five games that Spain has played have been in the Group Phase of the 2020 Eurocup, where the Sevillian has marked Norway, Faroe Islands, Sweden and Romania. He only remained without seeing a door during his visit to Malta in March.
13 goals in a row from the penalty spot
It also continues its reliability in the maximum penalties. Since May 9, 2018, the center has marked its last 13 pitches from the penalty spot with Real Madrid and Spain. As a Madrid player, he has transformed nine consecutively against Sevilla, Atlético de Madrid (2), Girona (2), Leganés (2), Valladolid and Celta. The other four penalties scored have been with Spain against Croatia, Norway, Sweden and Romania.
