Jamal Musiala sets European record as Germany beat Hungary 2-0

Jamal Musiala made history as Germany picked a 2-0 win over Hungary in Stuttgart, ensuring their spot in the Euro 2024 knockout stages.

Musiala, at 21, became the youngest player to score in a nation’s first two group stage games at a European Championship.

The Bayern Munich star opened scoring in the 22nd minute against Hungary, marking his second goal in a major tournament.

According to Opta, only four players: Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, Ferenc Bene, and Mikkel Damsgaard, have reached two goals in the European Championship at a younger age than Musiala.

Germany’s second goal came from İlkay Gündoğan, giving them the needed boost to qualify for the knockout stages.
