8 records Lamine Yamal has smashed at the age of 16

Lamine Yamal is living the dream of every 16-year-old footballer on the planet. On Friday, the winger smashed the record for the youngest player ever to play for the Spain national team and scorer too.

But Lamine has broken multiple other records before that. Let's look at all eight records obliterated by Yamal since he turned 16.

1. Youngest debutant with Barca: 15 years and 290 days - achieved against Real Betis.

2. Youngest debutant with Barca Atletic: 15 years and 297 days. Achieved against Eldense.

3. Youngest La Liga champion: 15 years and 305 days (against Espanyol), breaks Marc Muniesa’s record (17 years and 51 days).

4. Youngest La Liga starter in the 21st century: 16 years and 38 days against Cadiz, broke Fabrice Olinga's record (16 years and 112 days).

5. Youngest player to register an assist in La Liga in the 21st century: 16 years and 45 days, achieved against Villarreal. Breaks Juanmi Jimenez's record (16 years and 311 days).

6. Youngest debutant for Spain: 16 years and 57 days against Georgia. Breaks Gavi's record (17 years and 62 days).

7. Youngest goalscorer for Spain: 16 years and 57 days, achieved against Georgia, also breaks Gavi's record (17 years and 304 days).

8. Youngest player to score in a European Championship qualifier: 16 years and 57 days, also achieved against Georgia. Breaks Gareth Bale's record (17 years and 83 days).

Yamal will not break the record of the youngest player to play in the Champions League as he's already older than Youssoufa Moukoko (16 years, 27 days) when he appeared in the competition for Borussia Dortmund.
