A sensational goal from 16-year-old phenomenon Lamine Yamal helped Spain come from behind to beat France 2-1 in Munich and claim their place in the final of Euro 2024.

Yamal became the youngest player to score at a European Championship or World Cup, beating the record previously held by Brazil legend Pele, when he cut inside and curled a stunning effort in off the post from 25 yards in a pulsating first half.

Earlier, France had gone in front when Randal Kolo Muani headed in a sumptuous cross by Kylian Mbappe, who was playing without a mask having recovered from his broken nose suffered earlier in the tournament.

But Yamal’s brilliant strike tilted the momentum of the tie in Spain’s favour and the comeback was complete when Dani Olmo fired a low shot into the net off defender Jules Kounde, following an excellent piece of control in the France box shortly before.

France tried to muster a response in the second half but struggled to break down Luis de la Fuente’s side, with Mbappe wastefully firing their best opportunity over the bar in the closing stages.

Inspired by the extraordinary Yamal, this formidable Spain outfit will now face the winner of England’s semi-final against Netherlands in Sunday’s final having become the first side to win six consecutive games in European Championship history.

It is Yamal, though, scorer of the dazzling equalising goal, who has made the biggest mark in the record books.
