+

Two days after England's Jude Bellingham, 19, nearly cracked the top-10 youngest World Cup goalscorers, Spain's Gavi came crashing through with a goal of his own at 18 years, 110 days. Only Brazil's Pele and Mexico's Manuel Rosas were younger when they scored on the world's largest stage. Gavi made history from the opening kickoff when he and 19-year-old teammate Pedri became the first pair of teenagersto start for a European team in the World Cup since 1962. They both made an immediate impact and were instrumental in Spain taking a 4-0 lead through the opening minutes of the second half.
