Young Star Lamine Yamal Makes History as Spain Outshine France to Reach Euro 2024 Final

Young Star Lamine Yamal Makes History as Spain Outshine France to Reach Euro 2024 Final

This may be the beginning of a new empire, rising from the ashes of the previous one with new ideas and abilities, paving the way for an apparent domination as it forges ahead on its own. With victories over tough opponents like Italy, Croatia, Germany, and now France, Spain's trip to the Berlin final has been absolutely amazing. As a squad of historical significance, they have cemented their status with this glorious march, which represents their longest winning run since 2010 and their first trip back to the final stage since 2012.


To simply commend Spain for being deserving finalists would be a vast understatement. They haven't just played in this tournament; they have made it better, bringing football back to life in a land too often dominated by plodding assaults and defensive tactics. They've demonstrated that, despite the grind, football can still be a creative and artistic game. After Spain's women won the World Cup, their men will have a chance to follow in their footsteps on Sunday. Their success has been defined by a combination of skill, willpower, and a hint of magic.


16-year-old Lamine Yamal also made history by becoming the youngest goal scorer in the history of the competition. This is a credit to both his extraordinary talent and the supportive system that helped him advance to a major championship semifinal and gave him the confidence to score a thunderous 25-yard goal. In the 25th minute, Dani Olmo added another goal to complete the victory, demonstrating Spain's attacking enthusiasm in addition to their tenacity and grit.


Spain, a team that has no regard to the word ‘second place’, pushed themselves in desperation and maybe overwhelmed after going down early in the match. By the final hooter it was quite clear how desperate Deschamps’ team had become as they performed a series of olés while keeping the ball. Despite the presence of Kylian Mbappé in their ranks, the accusations of ‘defensive’ play may be slightly unfair, but as the match progressed, France did look stagnated and lost their pace.


Many staples of the French national side such as N’Golo Kanté, Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann, Adrien Rabiot, and potentially even the coach, Deschamps, might not have a place in this team after this game. It is not embarrassing that they are leaving; it is a natural progression. Despite having all the prospects now, France is still in search of fresh inspiration and a united front along with not over-relying on Kylian Mbappé. The manner in which sidelined talent Warren Zaïre-Emery was treated and promising young star Yamine Lamal, speaks volumes about their ordeal.


The nervousness against Spain was a result of France’s shaky beginning, which was marked by their loss to Randal Kolo Muani and issues with discipline. The examination of the Spain’s comeback should not concentrate on their technical ability, but on their psychological fortitude.


Meticulously, Coach Luis de la Fuente established an overwhelmingly confident and unshakeable conviction in the core of Spain’s triumph. Continuity is the blood of efficiency and Nacho exemplified this by how well he performed when he was drafted to deputize Robin Le Normand in defensive duties. Just like how they did not let the absence of Pedri affect their momentum, Olmo continued his influential play from the previous game against Germany seamlessly.


One of their key tactics was making great use of their wide players. Nonetheless, let’s not forget that both Nico Williams and Lamine Yamal are not your typical types of wingers, who operate near the touchline. I find it worthy to note that both of these goals were scored based on their inward movements which stretched and created havoc to the opposing full backs, shortened the pitch. The unexpected goal came with the help of Mbappé for Kolo Muani. The famous quote “Call an ambulance, but not for Spain!” is used in a humorous manner.


Unexpectedly, a series of passes led to the breakthrough: Olmo initiated the move with a pass to Álvaro Morata, who quickly passed the ball back to Lamine Yamal. The ball flew in the upper corner right away, the goal was so breathtaking that for a moment even Yamal became a child, and the incredible success of his master allowed him to transform the sport.


Four minutes into the second half, there was a cross by Jesús Navas into the box amid wavering efforts to make a tidying up. As much influenced by an instinctive desire to hold the ball, Olmo was in that position in the game at the time. He went ahead to put the ball in the net with a powerful finish that diverted off Jules Koundé, good footwork.


Spain, who had relied on a plan of conceding possession to France before the match, was caught off guard when France then made it apparent that they wanted the direct control of the ball too. France need not have seemed so harassed as time ticked away towards the interval without much happening, but they were not making much of chances. Spain, however, continued to create those sparkling chances and then goal keeper Mike Maignan was forced to come running to the Spanish penalty area to block a brilliant surge by Williams.


It was not completely far as France was had breathtaking short moments including headers from Dayot Upamecano, right footed shots from Théo Hernandez and dangerous cuts inside from right from Mbappé. Despite that France tried to press and advance, they didn’t have much to complain about tonight or even the whole competition. Football might be on the precipice of a new golden age, but what was once an unbeatable behemoth now seems sluggish, overripe, and sour-faced.
