16-year-old Lamine Yamal is the hero for Barça
FC Barcelona’s 4-3 victory over Villarreal CF was a dramatic back-and-forth contest, featuring some of the competition’s best players, yet the star of the show and winner of the MVP award was 16-year-old Lamine Yamal. The teenager was sensational, becoming the youngest player to assist a goal in a 21st century LALIGA EA SPORTS game when he set up Gavi’s opener, before his shot off the woodwork led to Robert Lewandowski’s winning strike.
