Spain’s Lamine Yamal has become the youngest scorer in EURO history, while Türkiye’s Arda Güler is now the youngest EURO debutant to find the net.

Spain’s Lamine Yamal has become the youngest scorer in EURO history with his stunning equaliser in the 2024 semi-final against France at the age of just 16 years 362 days.

Yamal beat the record of Switzerland’s Johan Vonlanthen, who was aged 18 years 141 days when he equalised against France at EURO 2004, breaking a Wayne Rooney mark that had stood for four days.

There are several other recognisable names among the top ten, which is now made up exclusively of teenagers, chief among them Cristiano Ronaldo, whose longevity is underlined by the fact that he also features in the list of oldest EURO scorers.

Another EURO 2024 entrant is Türkiye’s Arda Güler, who is sixth on the list after scoring against Georgia on Matchday 1. In the process, the 19-year-old became the youngest EURO debutant to find the net – beating Ronaldo’s previous record.

At the head of the standings, Vonlanthen’s longstanding mark has now been eclipsed by Yamal, who was not born when the Swiss forward struck two decades ago.
