Lamine Yamal breaks Barcelona teammate Gavi’s Spanish national record vs Georgia

Barcelona sensation Lamine Yamal has, on Friday evening, secured for himself a remarkable piece of Spanish football history.

For those not aware, Spain are currently locked in action on the international stage.

In their latest qualifying outing for Euro 2024, La Roja have made the trip to Tbilisi, for a meeting with Georgia.

As things stand at the The Boris Paitchadze Dinamo Arena, Luis de la Fuente’s troops, as expected, are in possession of a comfortable lead, owing to goals on the part of Alvaro Morata (2) and Dani Olmo, alongside a Solomon Kvirkvelia own goal.

As alluded to above, though, it is not Spain’s goalscorers on the night who have in fact stolen the headlines in Tbilisi.

This honour, instead, has been reserved for the aforementioned Lamine Yamal.

Yamal, fresh off a superb opening to the season with Barcelona, was recently rewarded with his first senior international call-up.

And, late in the first-half on Friday, the wide-man went one better, thrown into the fray in place of Dani Olmo for his La Roja bow.

In the process, he made history, too, breaking Barca teammate Gavi’s record as the youngest player to ever appear for the Spanish national team, at just 16 days and 57 years old.
