Spain’s Thrilling Victory Over France in Euro 2024 Semifinal

In a high-stakes clash at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Spain secured a dramatic 2-1 victory over France, booking their place in the Euro 2024 final.

France took an early lead with Randal Kolo Muani’s ninth-minute header, assisted by Kylian Mbappé. Lamine Yamal, just 16 years old, etched his name in history by equalizing for Spain in the 21st minute with a stunning long-range strike. Dani Olmo’s goal four minutes later proved to be the winner for La Roja.

Yamal’s goal made him the youngest scorer ever at a men’s major tournament, surpassing records at both the European Championship and World Cup. Spain, chasing their fourth European Championship title, will face either England or the Netherlands in the final in Berlin.
Kylian Mbappé played without the protective mask he had worn since breaking his nose in France’s opening group match. His assist for France’s goal showcased his impact, but Spain ultimately turned the tide.

Despite France dominating possession in the second half, Spain’s defense held firm. Théo Hernández and Mbappé missed late chances, while Yamal threatened with another powerful strike.
The stage is set for an epic final, and Spain’s young sensation Yamal will be one to watch.
