Alejandro Garnacho sets new UEFA Champions League record


Manchester United's wonderkid, Alejandro Garnacho has written his name in the history book of the UEFA Champions League.

The Argentine international became the second-youngest player to score a goal in the history of the competition at the age of 19 years and four months. Former Barcelona player, Lionel Messi still holds the record of being the youngest player to score a goal in the competition at the age of 18 years and four months.

Garnacho achieved this feat in the UEFA Champions League clash against Galatasaray on Wednesday, November 29, 2023.

He scored the goal just a few days after he scored the wonder strike against Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday, November 26, 2023, which is in contention for the Premier League goal of the season (2023/24).
