Lamine is Barca's latest electric, thrilling success story

If you weren't aware of Lamine Yamal Nasraoui Ebana, then it's time you were. Given that he made his debut for Barcelona last season while still 15 years old, and he was already the youngest LaLiga winner in Spanish history, he topped that last Friday in becoming the youngest ever to debut, or score, for the Spanish national team.

Anyone who's ever been around this electric, thrilling and anarchic footballer, whether coach, teammate or spectator, immediately glows with the evangelic effervescence of a complete convert. Lamine Yamal is that thrilling. But just stop and consider for a second: that vicious left-footed goal in Spain's 7-1 win in the pouring rain of Tblisi, Georgia, was scored by someone who was born 22 days after Pep Guardiola took over as coach of Barcelona B.
