Lamine Yamal Nasraoui Ebana (born 13 July 2007) is a Spanish footballer who plays as a forward for La Liga club Barcelona.
Early life and career
Born in Mataró, Spain to a Moroccan father and an Equatorial Guinean mother, Yamal spent most of his youth in Barcelona.
Growing up through the youth ranks of La Masia, Yamal was soon viewed as one of the academy’s best prospects. Whilst added to the Juvenil A team—already above his age grade—for the 2022–23 season, Yamal was selected by Xavi to train with the first team along with other youngsters in early September 2022. While still yet to sign his first professional contract with the club, he appeared to be one of the academy members to most impress the Catalan coach.
Yamal made his first-team debut on 29 April 2023, replacing Gavi in the 83rd minute in a 4–0 win against Real Betis in La Liga in which he registered a shot on target against former Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio Bravo and became the youngest player to ever appear for Barcelona’s first team at 15 years, 9 months, and 16 days old. He won his first title with Barça on 14 May 2023, having been part of the squad that won the 2022–23 La Liga. Despite this, he would miss the title celebration the following week due to international duty with Spain.
Yamal earned his first start for the club on 20 August 2023 in a 2–0 victory over Cádiz at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys, becoming the youngest-ever starter for Barcelona in La Liga at the age of 16 years and 38 days. His first start was met with a standing ovation by the fans as he was subbed off with five minutes left in the game.
Yamal is a youth international for Spain, having played for the Spanish U15 and U16 squads.
In 2023, he represented Spain’s U17 side in the 2023 European U17 Championship with Yamal scoring 4 goals during the tournament. Spain went all the way to the semi-finals where they were knocked out by France following a 3–1 defeat.
Style of play
A left-footed forward with great dribbling, passing and scoring abilities, Yamal is able to play both as a centre-forward, an attacking midfielder or a winger, mostly on the right flank.
With his technical profile, he was compared to Argentinian idol Lionel Messi, like many La Masia trainees before him, but also to more recent Barça player Ansu Fati.
