The Los Blancos number 9 scored the first goal in Spain’s 2-0 victory in the final against Russia, while Asensio assisted Nahuel to make it two and seal the victory.
Asensio was also key in the semi-final against France, scoring the two goals that qualified Spain with a 2-0 win.
Mayoral received the Golden Shoe as the top scorer of the tournament, having netted three goals against Germany and Russia. The 18-year-old has sealed an incredible season in which he has scored more than 50 goals for Los Merengues youth teams and he has earned a place to play next season for Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid Castilla.
Meanwhile, Asensio has been one of the best footballers of the season in the Spanish second division playing for Mallorca. Real Madrid secured his signing in the last winter transfer market and now Rafa Benitez will have to decide about his immediate future. The 19-year-old will most likely leave on loan to La Liga side. Many clubs have already shown an interested in him, including Espanyol and Betis.
