Barcelona midfielder Gavi has been named in Spain’s starting line-up for the 2022 World Cup round of 16 match against Morocco. Thanks to this, he set a historic achievement.
At 18 years 123 days old, Gavi became the youngest player to start his team in a World Cup play-off match since 1958. Then the legendary Brazilian Pele entered the base for the final against Sweden at the age of 17 years and 249 days. In that match, Pele scored a double.
