Lamine Yamal came off the bench to score in Spain’s 7-1 thrashing of Georgia in Tbilisi on Friday evening.
The teenager, 16, became the youngest ever scorer for La Roja when he netted in the second half of the game with a neat left-footed finish after some good play by Athletic Club’s Nico Williams on the left.
Lamine also became Spain’s youngest ever player on the same evening, replacing RB Leipzig’s in-form forward Dani Olmo in the 44th minute of the Euro 2024 Group A qualifier.
At just 16 years and 57 days old, the FC Barcelona player breaks the record previously held by his Barcelona team-mate and Spain midfielder Gavi, who made his Spain debut at 17 years and 62 days old.
Forward Álvaro Morata also netted a hat-trick on the night in a scintillating display by Luis de la Fuente’s team, who have six points from three games in their group.
