Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Spanish teen hailed after making World Cup history”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Spanish midfielder Gavi etched his name into the history books in his team’s 7-0 demolition of Costa Rica at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, becoming the youngest goalscorer at the tournament since Pele back in 1958.

Gavi produced a man-of-the-match performance as Spain kicked off their campaign in style on Wednesday.

Aged just 18 years and 110 days old, the Barcelona ace became the youngest player to appear for Spain at a World Cup or European Championship.

He made further history with a stylish finish for Spain’s fifth goal, arriving at the edge of the box before sending the ball in off the post with the outside of his right foot.

The strike made Gavi the youngest World Cup goalscorer since Pele was on target for Brazil in the quarterfinal of the 1958 World Cup, when he was aged 17 years and 239 days old.
