La Roja puts seven past Georgia as Lamine Yamal makes history

On a historic night for La Furia Roja in Tbilisi, Lamine Yamal achieved the distinction of becoming Spain’s youngest player and youngest goal-scorer.

At a mere 16 years and 57 days of age, Yamine Lamal made his debut as a substitute and capped off a dream start by calmly slotting home Spain’s final goal.

This contribution came as La Furia Roja dominated Georgia with a resounding 7-1 victory, injecting fresh hope into their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign.

Spain initiated the match aggressively and created numerous scoring opportunities before Alvaro Morata finally broke the deadlock in the 22nd minute. The relentless assault continued, resulting in Spain holding a commanding 4-0 lead by halftime.

Although injuries to Dani Olmo and Marco Asensio cast a shadow over the proceedings, they provided an opportunity for Yamal to make headlines while surpassing the records of his Barcelona and Spain teammate Gavi.

Much like Spain’s performance, Morata, wearing the captain’s armband, displayed newfound decisiveness in front of the goal. He notched his first-ever international hat-trick with clinical precision before exiting the field in the 72nd minute for a well-deserved rest.
