Nico Williams with the perfect performance against Georgia, Yamal equals Fabregas record

In an impressive display in the 4:1 victory over Georgia, Spain’s young talents have rewritten the record books, demonstrating their potential and skill on the European stage.

Lamine Yamal, at just 16 years old, created six chances in the knockout stage match against Georgia, matching the record set by Cesc Fàbregas against Russia in 2008. Yamal’s remarkable feat also mirrors Pedri’s performance against Switzerland in 2021, underscoring Spain’s tradition of nurturing young, creative talent.

Nico Williams delivered an extraordinary performance, becoming the only player on record in the UEFA European Championship (since 1980) to score a goal, assist a goal, and complete 100% of his passes (46/46) in a game he started. The flawless display comes only to show Williams’ precision and effectiveness on the field.

Spain’s resilience was also on full display as they overcame an early setback to secure a 4-1 victory over Georgia. The win set a new record for the largest margin of victory by a team that conceded the opening goal in a UEFA European Championship match.
