The 15-year-old shone in the game against Italy at the U17 European Championships
The Spanish national team kicked off their U17 European Championship campaign with a comeback of great merit against Italy. Two goals from Barcelona Marc Guiu cancelled out Ragnoli Galli's early goal as La Roja won 2-1. Lamine Yamal shone, too, in an introduction to Italian football.
Yamal's first half was more discreet, but, after the break, he led the comeback. He had three chances to equalise and, with the score finally in Spain's favour, produced an impressive action and the Italians had to stop him with a foul.
"It's clear that the luck of (coach) Julen Guerrero's team (in the stands, suspended) will depend to a large extent on his left foot," said La Gazzetta about the young Barça player.
And social media was amazed by him: "He's a difference-maker and by far the most important player that this national team has, trained in La Masia," said the website 'L'altra Faccia del Diavolo'.
"I don't know where this Yamal comes from, a 15-year-old with Spain U17s, but I saw three touched that were worth the price of a stadium ticket alone, or rather, a season ticket for the whole year. Extraterrestrial," tweeted 'Coccodrilli Viola'.
