Ramin Yamal (FC Barcelona), who continues to break all the youngest records in Spanish soccer, has become the youngest goal scorer in Primera Liga history.
Barcelona drew 2-2 away to Granada in the ninth round of the 2023-2024 Spanish Professional Soccer Primera Liga at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes in Granada, Spain, on Aug. 8 (local time).
Yamal raced in front of the right post to slot the ball into the net after João Felix slipped and kicked the ball out of the penalty area in first-half stoppage time with his team trailing 0-2.
It was the debut La Liga goal for Yamal, who was born in 2007 and is 16 years and 87 days old.
It is the youngest goal in La Liga history.
The previous record was held by Fabrice Olinga (Botosani), then of Malaga, at 16 years and 98 days.
Unsurprisingly, he also broke Ansu Pati’s record of 16 years and 304 days as Barcelona’s youngest league scorer.
Earlier, on his debut for the Spanish national team, Yamal scored Spain’s seventh goal in a Group A qualifier for the European Football Confederation (UEFA) European Championship (Euro 2024) last month, making him the youngest player to ever score for Spain.
At the time, he was 16 years and 57 days old.
In April, Yamal became the youngest Primera Liga debutant in club history at 15 years and 290 days, and in August, he broke the record for the youngest La Liga start at 16 years and 38 days. 슬롯게이밍
