Manchester City midfielder Rodri has been named named PlayStation® Player of the Match for the 2023 UEFA Champions League final.
Inter did well to neutralise City's attacking players for much of the final in Istanbul, but having helped to maintain his side's shape in defensive midfield, Rodri stepped up to curl in what proved to be the winning goal on 68 minutes.
UEFA's Technical Observer panel said: "Came up with the winning goal in a game with few chances and his involvement for City between the boxes was essential to have a balanced team."
Rodri added: "I'm emotional, this is a dream come true. In recent years we've been so close. It wasn't easy, what a team we faced; the way they defended, the way they counterattacked. We deserve to celebrate!"
