Gavi makes history with World Cup goal for Spain against Costa Rica

Barca Blaugranes

Barcelona midfielder Gavi made his World Cup debut on Wednesday against Costa Rica and made history by scoring Spain’s fifth goal.

The 18-year-old struck on 74 minutes after a cross from Alvaro Morata and wrote his name into the history books at the same time.

Gavi is already the youngest player to feature for Spain and is now the youngest to score for La Roja at a World Cup.

That’s not all either. Gavi also becomes the youngest player to score at a World Cup since a certain Pele back in 1958.

He’s also the third youngest goalscorer in World Cup history behind Pelé and Manuel Rosas.
