Lucas Vázquez Iglesias (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈlukaz ˈβaθkeθ iˈɣlesjas];[a] born 1 July 1991) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Real Madrid and the Spanish national team as a right winger.

Formed at Real Madrid, he made his first team debut in 2015 after a season on loan at Espanyol. He made his La Liga debut with the latter.

Vázquez represented Spain at Euro 2016.

Club career

Real Madrid

Born in Curtis, Galicia, Vázquez arrived at Real Madrid's youth system in 2007, aged 16. He made his senior debuts in the 2010–11 season with the C-team and, the following campaign, scored four goals in 23 games to help the reserves return to the second division after a five-year absence; his first came on 25 February 2012 in a 2–2 home draw against La Roda CF.[1]

Vázquez made his first appearance in the second level on 17 August 2012, playing six minutes in a 1–2 away loss against Villarreal CF.[2] He scored his first professional goal on 15 October, netting the winner in a 3–2 home success over UD Las Palmas.[3]

Espanyol

On 19 August 2014, Vázquez was loaned to La Liga's RCD Espanyol, in a season-long deal.[4] He made his debut in the competition on 30 August, coming on as a second-half substitute for Salva Sevilla in a 1–2 home loss against Sevilla FC.[5]

Vázquez scored his first goal in the main category of Spanish football on 5 October 2014, netting the first in a 2–0 home success over Real Sociedad.[6] On 3 June of the following year, he signed a four-year permanent deal with the Pericos,[7] for a 2 million fee.[8]

Return to Real Madrid

On 30 June 2015, Real Madrid exercised their buyback clause and Vázquez returned to the club.[9] He made his debut on 12 September in a 6–0 away win over his former team Espanyol,[10] and his first start came a week later, in a 1–0 home defeat of Granada CF.[11]

Vázquez scored his first competitive goal on 30 December 2015, replacing Karim Benzema for the final 15 minutes of the league fixture against Real Sociedad and netting in a 3–1 success at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.[12] He contributed with seven appearances in the season's UEFA Champions League, as the tournament ended in a win; in the final against Atlético Madrid, he again came on for the Frenchman late into the second half of a 1–1 draw, and converted his attempt in the penalty shootout triumph.[13]

Vázquez started the 2016 UEFA Super Cup against fellow Spaniards Sevilla FC, providing an assist to Sergio Ramos in injury time to take the game to extra time, where Real Madrid eventually won 3–2.[14] He signed a new contract on 26 October 2016, running until 2021.[15]

Vázquez appeared 33 times during 2016–17 and scored twice,[16][17] helping Real Madrid to its first league in five years.[18][19] He added ten matches in the campaign's Champions League, scoring once in the group stage[20] as his team also conquered the latter tournament.[21]

International career

Vázquez did not represent Spain at any youth level. On 17 May 2016 he, Saúl Ñíguez and Sergio Rico were the three uncapped players named in Vicente del Bosque's provisional squad for UEFA Euro 2016 in France,[22] and he also made it to the final list of 23.[23] He made his debut on 7 June, starting and playing 61 minutes in a 0–1 friendly loss to Georgia at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.[24]

Vázquez appeared once in the tournament, replacing Álvaro Morata in the 70th minute of a 0–2 round-of-16 defeat against Italy at the Stade de France.[25]
