At the Allianz Arena in Munich, Yamal scored a left-footed goal from outside the area to equalise the game in the 21st minute of a loss to France.

This goal was not only crucial for his team, but also allowed him to break the record set by Swiss Johan Vonlanthen, who had achieved the record in 2004 at 18 years and 141 days.

England’s Wayne Rooney had also been relegated, with his record of 18 years and 237 days, achieved the same year against Switzerland.

This record is not the only milestone that Yamal achieved, as Cesc Fabregas held the record for being the youngest scorer in the European Championship since 2008, at 21 years and 37 days with the Spanish national team.

Yamal’s debut at the European Championships was equally historic. Against Croatia, in his first match of the tournament, he became the youngest player to debut in the finals at 16 years, 11 months and 2 days.

Yamal’s feat resonates not only in Europe, but also in the history of world football. By scoring his third goal for the national team in 13 games, Yamal surpassed a record previously held by the legendary Pele.

Pelé had scored at the 1958 World Cup in Sweden at the age of 17 years and 239 days, and now Yamal has surpassed him as the youngest scorer in European and World Cup competitions.
