Marco Asensio opener v Macedonia

Marco Asensio scores insanely good Spain U21 hat-trick v Macedonia (videos)

Marco Asensio is bloody brilliant!

In truth, it will not take some brilliant performances at the European Under-21 Championships to tell football fans anything new about Marco Asensio.

The Real Madrid attacker announced himself this past season with some sensational displays, including a goal off the bench in the Champions League final.

Asensio has though opened Spain’s campaign in Poland with a sensational hat-trick in a 5-0 rout of Macedonia.

Saul gets things going with an overhead kick

Spain are the clear favourites to win the Under-21 European Championships and once again the quality they have available would embarrass some full international sides.

Saul got things going with an overhead kick before Asensio scored his first worldie of the match.

Gerard Deulofeu made it 3-0 from the penalty spot.

Before Asensio added two more insanely good goals in the second half to complete the 5-0 rout.

Considering it was their first game it might be too early to give Spain the title and crown Asensio best player in the tournament.

But, it would be no surprise if this is how it panned out.
