Yamal sets record unprecedented since Cristiano Ronaldo

In the big match of the round of 16 at EURO 2024, the Spanish national team proved their class with a convincing 4-1 victory over Georgia. The match took place with many unexpected developments, but in the end, La Roja affirmed their position as a strong candidate for the prestigious trophy.

From the very beginning of the match, Spain showed their dominance with their possession-based play and constant pressure on their opponents. In the first 14 minutes, they had possession of the ball 86% of the time and had 5 corners. However, Georgia was the team that took the lead. In the 17th minute, in a rare counter-attack, Georgia unexpectedly took the lead. Otar Kakabadze crossed the ball into the penalty area and in an attempt to block it, Spanish defender Robin Le Normand accidentally put the ball into his own net.

Despite being unexpectedly behind, Spain kept their composure and came back to beat Georgia. 16-year-old Lamine Yamal continued to shine after assisting Spain’s win over Georgia. In the 51st minute, from a beautiful combination, Lamine Yamal passed the ball accurately from the right wing to Fabian Ruiz who headed the ball accurately, putting Spain ahead 2-1.

In doing so, Yamal achieved an unprecedented EURO record by becoming the youngest player to provide an assist at a EURO since 2004. This record was previously held by Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo . Having made his international debut at the age of 18, Ronaldo participated in EURO 2004 at the age of 19 and scored 2 goals, assisted 2, helping Portugal to a runner-up finish at that year’s tournament on home soil. Ronaldo was also selected in the best squad of EURO 2004.
