Limelight changed hands in Germany on Tuesday when Spain beat France to qualify for the final of EURO ’24.
Spain’s 16-year-old Lamine Yamal got a superbly historic goal in the game superstar Kylian Mbappe was a shadow of himself especially with the squandering of a major trademark chance.
The Luis de la fuente team beat France 2-1, coming from a goal down as France opened the show with an early score.
Spain have been wonderful at the tournament having  recorded 6 wins and 13 goals.
The match started well with France pressing and having a goal at 8th minute from their centre forward Randal Kolo Muani with Kylian Mbappe assisting.
Spain, however, got the first goal by the wonder kid  Yamal hitting a stunning curve from outside the box in the 21st minute.
Yamal became the youngest ever EURO goal scorer at 16 Years old.
Dani Olmo, Spain’s attacker, got the second in the 25th minute, as they scored two goals in four minutes.
France could have got something in the second half through some clear- cut chances that were wasted.
It was thus a bad tournament for France’s clinical striker Mbappe who had only one goal from the penalty spot.
