16-year-old Yamal scores again as Spain beat Cyprus

Spain’s 16-year-old wonderkid Lamine Yamal scored his second international goal as his already qualified side beat Cyprus in Euro 2024 qualifying.

The Barcelona player became Spain’s youngest player and scorer in a 7-1 qualifying win against Georgia in September.

On Thursday, he rounded the goalkeeper before slamming home an early opener after a 22-pass move against Cyprus.

Mikel Oyarzabal and Joselu put Spain in control before Kostas Pileas struck.

Spain are two points above Scotland at the top of Group A going into Sunday’s final game with Georgia.

Meanwhile, Hungary have qualified for Euro 2024 courtesy of a last-gasp equaliser against Bulgaria in Sofia this afternoon.

The visitors went into the match knowing that they simply needed to avoid defeat against Group G’s bottom side in order to secure their place at next summer’s tournament in Germany.

However, it looked as though they may be forced to wait a little longer when Kiril Despodov put Bulgaria 2-1 ahead from the penalty spot with only 11 minutes of normal time remaining.

The result sees Hungary become the first team to qualify from Group G, although they could be joined by Serbia this evening if Montenegro fail to beat Lithuania.

The Magyars have now reached each of the last three European Championships, after missing out on 10 in a row before that.
