Prodigy Lamine Yamal equals Cristiano Ronaldo’s record

Spain’s young star Lamine Yamal is lighting up Euro 2024 with impressive performances. Most recently, he has equaled the record of legend Cristiano Ronaldo.

Spain looked to be in big trouble against Georgia when Robin Le Normand scored an own goal in the 18th minute. However, Rodri’s accurate finish brought the match back to level before the break.

Luis de la Fuente’s side dominated the rest of the game and added three more goals. Lamine Yamal’s cross was perfect for Fabian Ruiz to finish past Giorgi Mamardashvili. And Yamal’s assist set the stage for Spain to beat Georgia and reach the quarter-finals of Euro 2024.

 

 

Lamine Yamal became the first teenage player to assist multiple goals (2) since Cristiano Ronaldo in 2004.

Lamine Yamal also became the only player besides Zinedine Zidane to create more than 5 chances and shoot more than 5 times in a Euro match. In 2004, the French legend created 6 chances and shot 6 times in the 2-1 group stage win over England. Against Georgia, Lamine Yamal took 7 shots and created opportunities for his teammates 6 times.

 

 

Lamine Yamal is making great strides despite being only 16 years old. He is an important pillar for both Barcelona and the Spanish national team. This season, Yamal has played 50 matches and contributed to 17 goals at club and international level.
