The La Masia youth product has broken several records at the tournament, becoming the youngest player to feature in the competition's history.

He made history when he took to the field against Croatia at just 16 years and 338 days old and has provided three assists so far. And now, after scoring a wondergoal against France to become the youngest-ever scorer in the tournament's history, fans are saying he was "blessed" by the football god.

Nearly 17 years ago, the Argentine forward participated in a charity event with Spanish newspaper Diario Sport to raise money for charities, including UNICEF.

During the photoshoot, the future World Cup winner, then aged 20, cradled the infant Yamal and even bathed him as part of the series of photographs taken by Joan Monfort. Of course, what Messi could never have predicted was that the toddler would eventually play for Barcelona and become an international star.

Lamine Yamal's stunning goal and impressive performance earned him the Man of the Match award.

France took an early lead through Randal Kolo Muani, but Yamal's curling strike and Dani Olmo's goal turned the match in Spain's favor. Despite France's efforts, Spain's defense held strong, securing their place in the final and extending their winning streak to eight matches.

Yamal's performance was the standout, as he consistently threatened the French defense and proved himself to be a key player for Spain.
