Tuesday, July 9, saw a spectacular goal by Lamine Yamal to tie the score between Spain and France in the Euro 2024 semifinal.

As the youngest player to compete in a major event semi-final, Lamine Yamal broke previous records. In the Euro 2024, he represented Spain against France at the age of just 16 years and 362 days.

Yamal broke Pele’s record when he played in the semi-final. Pele participated for Brazil in the 1958 World Cup semifinal match, which also included France, at the age of 17 years and 244 days.

Youngest Player at European Championships

Earlier in the competition, the Barcelona winger had already garnered media attention. On June 15, at the age of 16 years and 338 days, he made history by starting Spain’s opening match against Croatia, making history as the youngest player to appear at the European Championships.

Yamal has performed admirably the entire tournament. Thus far, he has contributed three assists, a record no other Spanish player has held in a single European Championship.

And Yamal delivered a stunning goal to cap off his record-breaking performance. Following a goal by Randal Kolo Muani, Yamal had the ideal response to bring the score back to even.

Following Lamine’s equaliser, Dani Olmo scores another outstanding goal to give Spain the lead. Spain will play either England or the Netherlands in the Euro 2024 Final if they win the semifinal.
