The youngest player to feature in a Euro match
Jude Bellingham (17 years, 349 days) made history in the match between England and Croatia, broke the record of Jetro Willems (18 years, 71 days). But his record could soon be topped by Kacper Kolowski (17 years, 240 days) if this youngster features for Poland this summer.
Below is some other record related to this record:
🏆 The youngest goalscorer: Johan Vonlathen – Switzerland – Euro 2004 (18 years, 141 days)
🏆 The youngest player in the final: Renato Sanches – Portugal – Euro 2016 (18 years, 328 days)
🏆 The youngest goalkeeper: Jose Angel Iribar – Spain – Euro 1964 (21 years, 108 days)
🏆 The youngest goalscorer in a final: Pietro Anastasi – Italy – Euro 1968 (20 years, 63 days)
The Euro with the most goals scored
This record currently belongs to Euro 2016 with 108 goals scored. However, this record will be hard to break since the appearance of VAR (Video Assistant Referee) technology.
The player with the most goals in a single Euro campaign
This is an almost unbreakable record! In Euro 1984, legendary Michel Platini scored 9 goals to lead France to the title. With the developments of football tactics, goals are now hard to score. For example, Cristiano Ronaldo has been the biggest star of Portugal in 2016; however, he only scored three times in the whole campaign.
The most practical champion
This record currently belongs to Denmark in Euro 1992 and West Germany in Euro 1980. Both teams are downgraded before the competition and they reached the title by scoring only six goals in the whole competition. Let’s see if any team can break this astonishing record!
