Lamine Yamal at just 16 years old, continues to make headlines and break records, with his latest coming against France at Euro 2024.

He is now the youngest player to ever score in the European Championship.

His stunning goal leveled the score for Spain against France in their Euro 2024 semi-final in Munich.

Spain had a rough start, falling behind within the first 10 minutes as Randal Kolo Muani headed France into the lead following a brilliant setup by Kylian Mbappe.

However, Spain quickly bounced back. Just nine minutes later, Yamal received the ball from Alvaro Morata and curled an unstoppable shot from 25 yards out, making history in the process.

Yamal has been a standout talent since his professional debut with Barcelona in April 2023 against Real Betis.

Here are the 11 records the Spanish star has broken since then:

1. Youngest player ever to win Man of the Match in a UEFA game.

2. Youngest player ever to score at the Euros.

3. Youngest player ever to assist at the Euros.

4. Youngest player ever to feature at the Euros.
