During the mega clash, Jude Bellingham became the youngest player ever to feature in an European Championship match. Borussia Dortmund’s Bellingham came on in the second half replacing skipper Harry Kane, as he achieved the massive feat at 17 years and 349 days. Earlier the record was held by Enzo Scifo, who held it since 1984. Last season, Bellingham made 46 appearances scoring 4 goals for the German giants earning a regular place in the team. Johan Vonlanthen at 18 years and 141 days is the youngest player to score in the championships and Renato Sanches at 18 years and 328 days is the youngest player to feature in an EURO Final and Pietro Anastasi at 20 years and 63 days is the youngest player to score in a final for Italy.
