“Golden Boy! Ladies and Gentleman”, Twitter reacts as Gavi becomes the youngest goalscorer in Spain history at World Cup

"Golden Boy! Ladies and Gentleman", Twitter reacts as Gavi becomes the youngest goalscorer in Spain history at World Cup

Gavi, a midfielder for Barcelona, made history on Wednesday against Costa Rica by scoring Spain’s sixth goal in the tournament opener for them. After 74 minutes, after a cross from Alvaro Morata, the then-18-year-old scored the game-winning goal and etched his name into football lore.

Gavi has broken two records: he was the youngest player to play for Spain, and he scored the youngest goal in Spain’s World Cup history. Moreover, that’s not all. Gavi also surpasses a certain Pele as the youngest player to score in a World Cup. After Pelé and Manuel Rosas, he is the third youngest player to score a goal in World Cup history.

Gavi has emerged as a key player for both club and country despite just turning 18 in August. He has also been recognized for his outstanding debut, winning both the Kopa Trophy and the Golden Boy Award in 2022.

If he wins the World Cup with Spain, wouldn’t it be impressive?

The victory was Spain’s first-ever opening-game victory in a World Cup. Gavi, one of two adolescents to start the game, was the youngest goalscorer in team history at age 18, while Ferran Torres scored their 100th goal in tournament history. Two of Spain’s six scorers, their total of seven goals was so impressive it had to be spelt out on the vidiprinter to prevent any misunderstanding.

They took 16 shots but gave up none, resulting in seven goals. It was only fitting that Carlos Soler, after scoring the game’s last goal in the 92nd minute, pointed and winked to signify that “we’re here.”

He and Pedri, the graceful soaring 20-year-old who turns 20 this coming Friday, dominated the competition. But then the whole Spain team did, and they were really convincing as a unit. Sergio Busquets kicked the ball, and it continued ricocheting off his boot and landing just where he intended it to; there was no need for it to linger any longer.
