Lamine Yamal becomes youngest European Championship goalscorer


Spain’s Lamine Yamal became the youngest goalscorer in European Championship history at the age of 16 years and 362 days in Tuesday’s semi-final against France in Munich.

The Barcelona winger curled in a sensational shot from 25 metres to break the previous record for youngest scorer set by Switzerland’s Johan Vonlanthen, who was 18 years and 141 days old when he scored at Euro 2004.

The semi-final between both European football giants is expected to show more attacking prowess from both sides.

As it stands, Dani Olmo’s 25th-minute strike puts Spain in a 2-1 lead.
