Lamine Yamal vs Germany

Germany were considered to be the favorites to bag the Euro trophy on their home soil, after considering the level of discipline the German side was showing on the football pitch. Shining above all, performing against such an opponent, Lamine Yamal's showcase against Germany ranks second in my list.

The youngster seemed in top notch form from the start, creating nice through balls, or pressuring the opposition with his deep runs. However, the magical moment arrived in the 51st minute when his beautiful lofted ball found a clear Dani Olmo, who netted it past Manuel Neuer to take the lead against Germany. Not only did the assist help Spain get past Germany in a high voltage encounter but it made Lamine Yamal the first Spanish player to make 3 assists contribution in an International tournament since 1966.

Moments of magic were all glittered over the pitch by the Spanish star as he made an impact in his 63 minutes of play, that would remain in the history books for ages to come. Later, a winning header from Mikel Merino in the extra time sealed the game for La Roja, seeing them advance for the later stages of Euros.
