Everton's young Spaniard Deulofeu scores for Spain's under-21s

Everton's on loan Gerard Deulofeu scored again for Spain's under-21 side, and provided four assists in a comprehensive victory.

Gerard Deulofeu may be waiting for his first Premier League goal for Everton, but tonight he did something his fellow loanee Romelu Lukaku could not.

While Lukaku toiled as a substitute in Belgium's 2-0 international loss to Colombia, Deulofeu was on target for Spain's under-21 side.

The 19-year-old featured in a rampant Spain side against Bosnia-Herzegovina, who had caused an early shock by taking a lead.

Spain hit back by going onto score six unanswered goals, led by Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata who scored a hat-trick.

Atletico Madrid's Oliver Torres netted twice before Everton loanee Deulofeu scored a 69th minute penalty to wrap up the scoring in a 6-1 win.

It was the least he deserved after providing an incredible four assists for his teammates, by virtue of some excellent trickery and pinpoint passing.

Deulofeu, who starred at the under-20 World Cup in the summer, now has four under-21 goals to his name for Spain in 10 appearances.

It was also the first under-21 goal he has scored for his country since making the loan switch to Everton, having made three appearances without a goal since the 2013/14 season began.

He has just one League Cup goal for Everton to his name so far, but Roberto Martinez may just find the young striker returns with an extra spring in his step when he returns.
