FC Barcelona have a number of their youngsters competing on the biggest stages this summer for their national teams. Some players such as Araujo and Pedri have not been lucky with injuries amidst top performances some may have been expecting from them heading in. On the other hand, some have had fantastic international campaigns that have taken football fans by surprise.

However, there is one FC Barcelona player in particular who had a breakout tournament this summer. And whose talent is catching the eyes of football fans all around the world.

Lamine Yamal is having a tremendous EURO campaign helping guide Spain to the Final. Ultimately, they could create history by winning their record extending Euros title by winning against England in Berlin. Even if they lose the final that does not take away from their commendable effort, as they exceeded a lot of expectations.

Yamal set a number of records at the EUROs this summer. He became the youngest player to score on his EURO debut, the youngest Turkish player to score in any international competition and the third youngest player to score and assist in the same EURO. It was certainly a summer to remember for the 19-year-old and hopefully a sign of things to come.

Now looking at Yamal, do you know his best performance while representing Spain at the tournament? On that note, here are 3 best performances by Lamine Yamal in an impressive EURO 2024...

Lamine Yamal vs France

Though Yamal has dominated almost every match he has featured in for Spain, be it the opener against Croatia or the knockout against Germany, but his brilliant MOTM perfirmance in the Euro semifinal stood out among the rest. And thus Yamal's masterclass against France tops the list in my opinion.

Be it completing dribbles, creating chances or scoring a beauty, Lamal ticked all the boxes possible in a winger's to do list. His wondergoal not only took the footballing world go wow after it, but reminded themselves of how Lionel Messi's brilliance used to captivate the hearts of us Culers. Most importantly, his brilliant curler, from outside the box, in front of a charging Rabiot, saw Spain tie the fixture against the French team that lifted La Roja's morale.

However, that wasn't enough as the 16-year-old continued with his mesmerizing performance, deploying the flanks against the French Backline that included the likes of Jules Kounde, Theo Hernandez and William Saliba. With his MOTM performance, the youngster ensured a final for Spain, who were considered underdogs before the tournament.
