The name of Lamine Yamal has been on everyone’s lips at La Masia for years. Also in the networks where his goals have gone viral, despite being only 15 years old and playing in Juvenil A. Lamine is a striker who enters through the eyes.
An unpredictable forward who dominates registers that seem Brazilian in the definition. The pause he manages in the area and his ability to make impossible lobs make him a very fun player to watch.
Last season he was already playing with teenagers older than him, although his physical change is becoming more and more evident. He has given a spectacular growth spurt that does not notice a great physical change compared to his teammates.
What kind of player is Lamine Yamal?
From the outset he is only 15 years old, so Lamine Yamal is a footballer to be defined and whose evolution will depend on many factors. Until now most of the time he has played as a right winger with a changed leg. From that position, he makes a difference due to his one-on-one skills.
He is a striker who, despite his size, is very elastic. In addition, it has plenty of resources to overcome its rivals, some of them as plastic as the elastic one. Lamine also stands out for being left-footed and for his shot.
Lamine has also played some nine games, another position that suits his characteristics. Despite not being a lightning-fast striker, his dribbling and finishing make a difference in these categories. Not only at Barça are they enjoying their goals, with Catalonia and with Spain they have also been the protagonist. With the latter he has also played as an attacking midfielder, further proof that he is still a player in the midst of a formative process yet to be defined.
