Lamine Yamal vs Georgia

Though you might feel that this performance came against a relatively easy opponent, but for that I would like to remind you that Georgia had arrived in the Round of 16 by defeating Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal, which possessed the caliber to win the tournament on their day. Thus, Lamine Yamal's performance against Georgia, in the Round of 16, holds the third position in my rankings.

The match seemed to be a total bliss for the Georgia side, starting from Rodri and finishing with Dani Olmo, Spain tormented the opposition after the own goal from Normand. In the process significant pieces of brilliance were delivered by the 16-year-old magician, however, talking stats wise, Lamal contributed with an assist in the 4-1 win over Georgia. His long through ball had found an onrushing Fabian Ruiz, who netted it without much difficulty to bring the Spanish side into the lead, for the first time.

Although it was a collective masterpiece from De La Fuente's side, this performance held immense significance for the young Yamal, who with the confidence acquired from the fixture, went on to bamboozle the mighty Germany and a confident France in the upcoming matches.
