Lamine Yamal has taken the football world by storm. Already a starter for FC Barcelona at 16, Yamal is the creative spark the club was missing after Lionel Messi's departure. Boasting off seven goals and ten assists, the Spaniard was among the few positives in an overall inconsistent season. His displays towards the end of the 2023–24 season earned him a place in Euro 2024 squad.

Seeded in a competitive group alongside Italy and Croatia, Yamal has stepped up for Spain in all four games, registering two assists. The La Masia graduate aims to play a vital role as Spain locks horns with Germany in a crucial quarter-final clash.

Leroy Sane called Lamine Yamal remarkable

Ahead of their big match, Germany and FC Bayern Munich ace Leroy Sane has praised Yamal. Speaking at the UEFA Euro 2024, he said,

""With Lamine Yamal Spain have a player who makes me ask myself: "How is that possible at this age?" - That’s remarkable. I enjoy watching him a lot. I hope he continues that way.""

Leroy Sane

These are massive words of appreciation for a youngster from a two-time Premier League winner and three-time Bundesliga Champion. Sane himself is looking to emulate the successes of Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams. With no goal contributions in his limited 161 minutes across the group stage and round of 16, the jet-heeled winger would want to make amends in the clash vs Spain.
