Spain’s Lamine Yamal, 16, becomes youngest Euro scorer ever

Lamine Yamal became the youngest player ever to score at a men’s European Championship on Tuesday when he netted a stunning goal against France in the semifinal match.

The 16-year-old Yamal scored in the 21st minute, curling a stunning finish past France goalkeeper Mike Maignan and into the top left corner off the inside of the post.

Yamal is 16 years and 362 days old. The previous youngest scorer was Swiss player Johan Vonlanthen (18 years, 141 days), also against France, at Euro 2004.

The score is currently 2-1. Yamal’s goal canceled out Randal Kolo Muani’s opener for France.

France defender Jules Koundé turned the ball into his own net four minutes after Yamal’s goal to give Spain the lead.
