17-Year-Old Eduardo Camavinga's Individual Highlights vs Ukraine Prove He Is Football's Next Big Star

17-Year-Old Eduardo Camavinga's Individual Highlights vs Ukraine Prove He Is Football's Next Big Star

Eduardo Camavinga became France's youngest goalscorer in over 100 years when he scored on his first international start, aged just 17 years and 332 days old.

Didier Deschamps' side produced a dominant performance against Ukraine on Wednesday night, with goals from the likes of Olivier Giroud, Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann securing an emphatic 7-1 win at the Stade de France.

But despite goals from some of the world's most renowned players, it was a special performance from talented midfielder Eduardo Camavinga that grabbed the headlines.

It took the 17-year-old central midfielder, who plays for Ligue 1 side Rennes, just nine minutes to find the net with an incredible acrobatic effort.

Camavinga, with his back to goal, flung his foot at the ball to score what turned out to be the goal of the game. It was the start of things to come for the youngster, who flourished in attacking areas.

PSG manager Thomas Tuchel is also a big admirer of the French teenager but did doubt that a move would be financially possible.

"Would I like to have him on my team? Yes, of course," Tuchel said. "But I can't talk about other players, who are not from my team.

"He's one of the best players in Ligue 1. He's a great player, very strong, with a great future. But he also plays in a great team which plays in the Champions League. But that's not how it goes, it's not Monopoly!
