I hadn’t really seen a hell of a lot of Isak before but he looks a real talent. He’s always been someone who has been heralded as a future star but I definitely saw something in him tonight. He had some great feet in tight situations and looked like the one Swedish player who could make something happen.

he's great for Sweden if you ever watch them. Distributes the ball really well.

Main difference is Sweden play ultra defensive he hardly left the penalty box so his vulnerability to long balls in behind him was never really exposed as he never got near the half way line.

I watched the game wouldn't have picked him out as the stand out player in the game but Sweden defended well and it was a game where no one really stood out.

Quite liked the look of Isak looks like there's some talent there just a shame he didn't get to see more of the ball.

I didn't watch last nights game, but I have seen him a few times for Sweden and he really shows his quality, always brings the ball out, penetrates into the midfield and gets a pass off, or hits a great cross field ball. Granted they defend differently so he doesn't get exposed.

I've always said Lindelof will look quality in La Liga so it's hardly a surprise he looked good against Spain. They don't play a 40 yard ball for him to get caught underneath of.

Thought Danielson looked very good beside Lindelof and probably the pick of the defenders - it really was a group effort from them all though.
