No player at the Euros has more goals and assists than Benjamin Šeško's teammate at Leipzig, Dani Olmo.

Initially, UEFA credited the second goal of the Spanish national team against France to French defender Jules Kounde. However, they later revised the decision and credited the goal to Dani Olmo, who took the initial shot that deflected off Kounde.

This means the 26-year-old Leipzig midfielder has scored his third goal of the tournament, in addition to providing two assists, making him the only player at the championship directly involved in five goals.

What makes Dani Olmo's performance even more remarkable is that he wasn't part of the starting eleven in the group stage. He entered the match against Croatia in the 59th minute, stayed on the bench for the entire game against Italy, and started only against Albania, where coach Luis de la Fuente gave opportunities to the reserves.

In the round of 16 against Georgia, he came on in the 52nd minute. The tournament turned in his favor in the quarter-final when he replaced the injured Pedri in the eighth minute against Germany. The semi-final against France was only his second start in the tournament, where he scored the decisive goal.

Olmo scored against Georgia, Germany, and France and provided assists against Albania and Germany.
