The game between Georgia and Spain was supposed to bring some major records in world football, and it did not disappoint by giving fans a new milestone that waited over 100 years to be matched.
During the final moments of the game that La Roja won with a comfortable 7-1 score, Barcelona youngster Lamine Yamal managed to score a nice goal inside Georgia's box to put an end to Spain's goalscoring fiesta. The player had already become the youngest player ever in La Roja's history to play an international match, but it became an even bigger feat when he found the back of the net.
