Pedri Gavi is Spain's next-generation star, and there are some striking similarities between him and Barcelona team-mate Xavi Iniesta. Both players have the ability to switch from midfield to forward, and they both want to become the players to carry their country to glory. While Pedri will only be 19 when the World Cup kicks off, he has already played 70 matches for club and country in 2020/21, and he's just one more season away from joining the elite of world football.

Both players understand their legacy, and both hope to follow in the footsteps of Barcelona's previous generations of midfielders. Xavi made his Spain debut in 2000, and Andres Iniesta joined Spain's ranks one month before the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Xavi and Iniesta helped Barcelona to four Champions League triumphs, and both are looking to recreate the midfield partnership of their own times.

Pedri started his career as a midfielder, and has worked alongside Lionel Messi at Barcelona. He has won three La Liga titles and was named the Spanish Golden Boy of the year for his breakout season. However, Pedri has not provided a big goal threat in recent matches. Despite this, he is a solid fantasy option, and he should be back in the Spain squad for their upcoming match against Valencia.

Pedri is expected to start Spain's World Cup opener against Morocco on Sunday, and he will need to be at his very best if the team is to come through to the quarter-finals. Pedri was instrumental in Spain's 7-0 demolition of Costa Rica on Wednesday, as he set up Dani Olmo and Marco Asensio for Spain's first two goals. Aside from these two goals, Spain recorded 22 shots, five more than the Central American side managed in their first game of the tournament. In total, Spain created 152 passes.

After the match, Sky Sports' Graeme Souness said: "Pedri and Gavi remind me of Xavi and Iniesta, and they both want to become the players who carry their country to glory. It's going to be an exciting tournament for Spain, and it's going to be a real test for them. I don't think Spain have done anything like this before."

The 19-year-old is a huge talent, and will make a big impact at the World Cup. But, Spain have a long way to go to match the feats of their past teams. In the meantime, Pedri has a good chance to become a household name in Qatar. He may not be the best player at Barcelona, but he is a highly talented and technically gifted youngster, and he could be a player of the season candidate when he returns.

Pedri and Gavi reminded many of their former Barcelona teammates in the opener, and were backed by a solid midfield unit that included Sergio Busquets. That midfield trio anchors Spain's best midfield three at the World Cup, and they were rewarded for their efforts on Wednesday.
