The 19-year-old Real Madrid midfielder stole the show, not only with a creative masterclass but also with a stunning long-range strike that many are calling the goal of the tournament so far.

Guler’s goal went down a treat and got his team out of a tough patch at a point in the game where the scores were tied 1-1.

Güler’s heroics didn’t go unnoticed by his teammates at Real Madrid. Several took to social media platforms to shower their young teammate with praise:

Jude Bellingham took to Instagram to send a message out to his Real teammate that he was ‘not surprised abi’.

Abi is Turkish for older brother and is often used affectionately as among friends, similar to the English ‘bro’.

Thibaut Courtois also tweeted on X ‘Arda abi’, referring to the young star player as his brother as well.
