The new Golden Boy of Spanish football

Lamine Yamal is already making waves in Spanish football. Lamine Yamal has broken several records, including becoming the youngest player to ever win LaLiga and the youngest player to score for the Spanish national team. He is a product of La Masia Academy and has been tipped for a bright future since he was a child. He is a versatile player who can play on either wing or as a striker, he is also known for his pace, dribbling skills, and finishing ability.

Yamal has already made a big impact at Barcelona since his debut in the first team last season. He has made six appearances for the club so far. Xavi as a manager is somebody who doesn’t care about the age, he cares about the performances, which is exactly why Yamal has featured in all the four LaLiga games for Barcelona this year and made his senior team debut for Spain’s national team.

He is a special talent, and he has the potential to be one of the best players in the world. Only time will tell what he will achieve, but one thing is for sure: Lamine Yamal is a name to watch. If he finds the net in the next month, he will become the youngest goal scorer in La Liga history, surpassing Fabrice Olinga, who scored for Malaga in 2012.

Records that Lamine Yamal has broken

Youngest debutant for FC Barcelona

Lamine Yamal made history when he became the youngest player to ever make his debut for FC Barcelona. The 16-year-old winger came on as a substitute in the second half of Barcelona’s 4-0 win over Real Betis in La Liga last season. He was only on for seven minutes but he managed to have quite an impact on the game.

The previous record was held by Vicente Martinez, who was 16 years and 280 days old in 1941. Yamal is a long-line product of Barcelona’s academy that has produced world-class talents, he is following in the footsteps of Xavi, Messi and Iniesta.

Youngest debutant with Barca Atletic

Exactly seven days after making his debut with the first team and playing the last few minutes of the Barca-Betis game, he once again experienced a day he will never forget. He was given a chance to play for the reserve team of Barcelona (Barca Atletic) by Rafa Marquez, he came on in the 66th minute against Eldense and became the youngest player to debut with Barca Atletic.

He was 15 years, 9 months, and 21 days when he broke the record. The idea of the first team coach, Xavi, was that Lamine Yamal would continue to play in the dynamic with the big teams and get more experience before becoming an integral part of his squad.

Youngest LaLiga champion

Lamine Yamal made history in 2023 when he became the youngest player to ever win La Liga. The 16-year-old winger was part of the Barcelona team that won the title, breaking the record previously held by Marc Muniesa (17 years and 51 days). He was named the La Liga Breakthrough Player of the Season.

Yamal’s achievement is a remarkable one, and it is a testament to his talent and potential. He is still very young, but he has all the tools to become a superstar.

Youngest LaLiga starter in the 21st century

Lamine Yamal, the youngest player to ever feature for FC Barcelona in LaLiga, made his full debut for the club at just 16 years and 38 days old, he made his full team debut against Cadiz FC. He surpassed Fabrice Olinga (16 years and 112 days) who was the youngest to ever make a full team debut.

LaLiga champions struggled in their opening game of the season against Getafe CF with a 0-0 draw, but in Yamal’s historic start, Barca scored two late goals to seal a 2-0 win against Cadiz to claim its first win of the 2023-24 La Liga season.

Youngest LaLiga assist provider in the 21st century

Last week’s Sunday afternoon Laliga duel between Villarreal CF and FC Barcelona was a thriller, which finished 4-3 to the Catalan side. The match saw some historic performances, Lamal started the match and it took him only 12 minutes to assist Gavi in the opening goal.

After his assist, he became the youngest LaLiga assist provider in the 21st century at 16 years and 45 days (against Villarreal), surpassing Juanmi Jimenez (16 years and 311 days). Lamal was applauded by the home fans of Villareal who really appreciated the youngster’s performance.

Youngest debutant for the Spanish national team

Earlier this week after turning in a handful of star showings for Barcelona this season, Yamal was included in Luis de la Fuente’s squad for the UEFA Euro Qualifiers. He didn’t start the match against Georgia but came on as a sub in the first half to replace Dani Olmo.

He made his debut on September 8, 2023, at the age of 16 years and 57 days, breaking the record previously held by Gavi (17 years and 62 days). Yamal’s debut with the Spanish national team was a sign of great things to come for the young player, he is sure to continue to impress in the years to come and make a name for himself in the world of football.

Youngest goal scorer with the Spanish national team

Lamine Yamal became the youngest debutant and the youngest goal scorer on the same night against Georgia. He took the youngest player record from Gavi, who was 17 years and 62 days old when he made his Spain debut in 2021.

In the 74th minute, two youngsters combined for a goal, Nico Williams assisted Yamal in creating history when he scored the seventh goal for Spain in a 7-1 thumping win over Georgia. The future is bright for the Spaniard and a lot of records on his sight can be broken by the youngster.
