The 2020 Tokyo Olympics have come to an end, and without a doubt, this year's edition of Men's Football has been one of the most exciting in recent years. 

Brazil defeated Spain 2-1 in the final to win the Gold Medal for the second time in the last two Olympic Games, but it should be noted Spain's squad, in terms of talent, is second to none. 

One of the players who better performed during the International competition this summer was the winder Bryan Gil, who played a big role in Spain's Silver Medal run, is now ready to take a big step in his career.


This summer, the 20 year-old was included in a swap deal between Sevilla and Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs sent Erik Lamela and €25m plus add-ons to Sevilla in exchange for Gil.

Since Spain was involved in the Gold Medal game, Gil will miss the start of the new season, and potentially the entire month of August.

Tottenham will begin their 2021 / 22 Premier League campaign on August 15th against Manchester City and will also play against Wolves and Watford before the International break starts in September. 

Gil will bring a lot of speed down the left side for Spurs, which should complement Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane moving forward.

He's also been considered by many as the 'Little Johan Cruyff' due to his great dribbling skills in tight areas, which he showed during the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.


''With total pride I hang this silver medal on myself and celebrate it as a victory,'' Gil wrote on an Instagram post. ''We all wanted gold, but to bring an Olympic medal to your country, your family and your friends, not everyone can do it.
