Spain debutant Lamine Yamal became the youngest player to represent the senior men’s team at only 16 years and 57 days. He came off the bench as a substitute in the 44th minute, in Spain’s demolition of Georgia.
He broke the youngest record previously held by Gavi who had made his international debut in 2021, aged 17 years and 62 days.
The teenager then completed the scoring for Spain in the 74th minute for a 7-1 Euro 2024 qualifying win, breaking another record to become the youngest goalscorer for Spain.
Last month, Yamal became the youngest player to start a La Liga match in the 21st century, after his full debut for Barcelona.
When he made his debut for Barcelona in April aged 15, he became the club’s youngest player in more than a century.
It was Álvaro Morata’s night, as he scored a hat trick for his country, while an own goal from Solomon Kverkveila and goals from Dani Olmo and Nico Williams cupped the sweet win for the Spanish side.
Spain is second in Group A, nine points behind Scotland with the Scots having played two games more.
