PSG midfielder Marco Verratti insists not even Lionel Messi has out on such a wonderful performance as Isco did against Italy on Saturday at Bernabeu.
Italy were defeated 3-0 by Spain with Isco playing a huge part in their defeat.
At one point in the game Verratti was nutmegged by Isco which got everyone talking.
Verratti revealed he was left shocked by the Spaniard’s display.
‘I suffered a lot against Isco’, Verratti said after the match.
‘I was taken aback by his performance. Not even Messi has come close to that level. When I saw his nutmeg, I felt like standing up and applauding too.’
Italy will hope to bounce back against Israel on Tuesday night.
