Yuri GROMOV, “FACTS”
Match of the 31st round of the championship of Spain between real Madrid and Mallorca (2:0) went down in history of La Liga.
On 84 minutes the visitors were replaced by Argentine midfielder Luke Romero, who at age 15 years, 219 days became the youngest player in the history of the championship. According to the information portal Goal.com previously, the record was considered a defender of “salty” Sanson, who at the time of the debut in senior football in December 1939 was 15 years 255 days.
As the newspaper notes, Luke has excellent dribbling and a well-delivered blow with his left foot. Given the skills of Romero, it is not surprising that now it is compared to famous compatriot, a six-time winner of the “Golden ball” Lionel Messi.
Earlier, the “FACTS” reported that Messi set a record in the Spanish League, scoring at least 20 goals in 12 consecutive seasons.
