Teen sensation Kobbie Mainoo shatters record in debut vs Netherlands!

Kobbie Mainoo Breaks England Record Before Ever Kicking a Ball at Euro 2024

Manchester United star Kobbie Mainoo has made headlines by breaking a record even before setting foot on the pitch against the Netherlands at Euro 2024. The 18-year-old midfielder became the youngest-ever England player to start a semi-final tournament match, surpassing Wayne Rooney’s record.

Mainoo’s impressive journey began when he took to the bench for England’s opening fixture against Slovenia but was brought on as a second-half substitute to stunning effect. Gareth Southgate’s squad went on to win the match and secure qualification for the knockout stage.

A Star on the Rise
Mainoo, who had previously played with England Under-19s and Under-21s, has undeniably made a compelling case to include himself in the starting line-up from the get-go. Having already set the tone with a fine performance against Scotland, he has successfully forced Gareth Southgate’s hand in regards to who should start against the Orange.

Bigger and Brighter Things on the Horizon
At just 18 years old, it’s still early days, but Mainoo’s rapid rise should have Mancunian fans alike excited about their futures. With numerous accolades within his grasp – including the chance to become the face of Manchester United’s youth product line – the trajectory of an incredible career should be cemented.
