16-Year-Old Lamine Yamal Becomes Youngest Euro Goalscorer In Spain’s 2-1 Victory Over France

Spain made it to the Euro 2024 final with a 2-1 victory over France with Lamine Yamal setting a record.

In a thrilling semi-final at the Fußball Arena München, Spain secured a spot in the Euro 2024 final with a 2-1 victory over France, thanks to a historic goal by 16-year-old prodigy Lamine Yamal. This win marks Spain as the first team to win six consecutive games in the European Championship.

The match began with France taking an early lead in the 8th minute. Kylian Mbappe, who returned to the field without a protective mask following his recovery from a broken nose, delivered a perfect cross that Randal Kolo Muani headed past the Spanish goalkeeper.

However, Spain’s response was swift and spectacular. In the 21st minute, Yamal etched his name in the record books by becoming the youngest player to score at a European Championship or World Cup. The teenager received the ball on the edge of the box, cut inside, and unleashed a beautiful curling shot that hit the post before nestling in the net.

Spain capitalised on their momentum just four minutes later. Dani Olmo’s low shot deflected off French defender Jules Kounde and found its way into the goal, giving Spain a crucial 2-1 lead.

The second half saw France pushing for an equalizer, with Aurelien Tchouameni having a header saved and Mbappe missing a critical chance late in the game, sending his shot over the bar. Despite France’s efforts, Spain’s defense held firm, showcasing their ability to complement their attacking prowess with a solid defensive performance.

Spain’s victory was not just a testament to their offensive capabilities but also their defensive resilience. As they prepare to face either England or the Netherlands in Sunday’s final, Spain looks poised to compete for their fourth European Championship title.

Yamal’s historic goal and Spain’s comprehensive team effort will be remembered as defining moments in their journey through Euro 2024. France, despite their valiant efforts, fell short against a Spanish side determined to make history.

The final promises to be an exciting showdown, with Spain eager to continue their remarkable run and claim the European crown.
