Record-Breaking wonder goal by Lamine Yamal shocks France in Euro 2024 semi-final

Munich, Germany – Lamine Yamal made history during the UEFA Euro 2024 semifinal match between Spain and France by becoming the youngest scorer ever in European Championships history. At just 16 years old, Yamal showcased his talent with a stunning left-footed shot that found the back of the net in the 21st minute, securing a crucial goal for Spain.

The record-breaking goal came as a pivotal moment in the game, tying the score at 1-1 after France’s Randal Kolo Muani had opened the scoring. Following Yamal’s goal, Spain took the lead for good in the 25th minute when France’s Jules Kounde accidentally deflected the ball into his own net off a shot by Dani Olmo.

Yamal’s remarkable performance throughout the Euro 2024 tournament has not gone unnoticed. The young star has been a key player for Spain, featuring in all six of the team’s games and starting in five of them. In addition to his goal-scoring prowess, Yamal has also contributed with assists in crucial knockout round matches.

Prior to Yamal’s record-breaking goal, the youngest scorer title was held by Switzerland’s Johan Vonlathen.

Yamal’s achievement at the age of 16 highlights his exceptional talent and potential for a bright future in football.

As Spain’s victory secured their spot in the Euro 2024 final, Yamal’s performance has solidified his position as a rising star in the world of football.
