Alexander Isak ran riot last night against Real Madrid and social media reacted to the incredible display
Alexander Isak may not be a name will recognise. But he will be on everyone's lips in a few years if not sooner.
Isak, who has 12 caps for Sweden already, was sensational in last night's Copa Del Rey Quarter-Final victory over Real Madrid, scoring twice and assisting in their 4-3 win.
Real Sociedad faced the almighty task of travelling to the Bernabéu, and nobody fancied Imanol Alguacil's side to defeat Real Madrid.
Zinedine Zidane's men hadn't lost at home in any competition this season and went into this fixture on an unbeaten 21-game run.
Therefore not only was winning a brilliant feat, but they were also the first team to score four goals at the Santiago Bernabéu since Ajax's triumph in March 2019.
But it was Isak, who was a summer signing from Borussia Dortmund, who stole the show for La Real.

The 20-year-old also notched an assist for Mikel Merino who netted Sociedad's fourth of the night.
Social media obviously went into meltdown after the youngsters stunning performance against one the world's best clubs.
