We often see a young prodigy coming out of nowhere and taking the football pitch by storm with mesmerizing displays. Some of them complement the fine performances with beautiful goals to remember for a long time.
The 2019-20 season has been halted by the Coronavirus pandemic which is causing havoc worldwide. So in this time off the football pitch, let’s have a look at the youngest goalscorers in each of Europe’s top five leagues: LaLiga, Serie A, Premier League, Bundesliga and Ligue 1.
LaLiga – Fabrice Olinga (Malaga)
Age: 16 years and 98 days on 18/08/2012
Olinga scored the only goal of the game against Celta Vigo. He scored the winner off his thigh from five yards. The fortuitously scored goal created LaLiga history.
