De Gea was the goalkeeper and Ramos, San José and Azpilicueta were the other three defenders that Vicente del Bosque lined up that September 4, 2014 when Dani Carvajal (Leganés, 32 years old) made his debut for Spain in a friendly lost 1-0 against France in Paris.

Close to reaching his decade as an international player, the Real Madrid player scored his first goal in Berlin. He did it in his 45th game with La Roja in the 47th minute after finding a magnificent cross from Lamine Yamal in the area. «It is an absolute ‘killer’ goal; “You also have to be ready on set pieces,” he celebrated with a wide smile in the mixed zone.

His goal has united the veteran with the youngster. In that play Lamine Yamal has become the youngest to assist in the history of the competition (16 years and 338 days). Carvajal, on the other hand, has become the oldest player to score for Spain in the Euro Cup (32 years and 156 days).

Carvajal’s lack of goal for Spain was a strange circumstance. He is not a winger with tremendous scoring numbers, but he has streaks of scoring goals. As has happened this same campaign, in which he has scored six goals for Real Madrid. His balance in the white club is 17 in 520 games.

Carvajal has gotten two thorns in Berlin. That of not having scored with La Roja and that of debuting in a European Championship. He didn’t play any of the previous two that he was able to go to. In 2016 Del Bosque opted for Juanfran and in 2021 he missed it due to a fibula injury suffered in the Champions League with Madrid against Chelsea in a match played behind closed doors in Valdebebas.

The Real Madrid full-back celebrated the victory. «You couldn’t ask for more from a great rival. In the second half we slowed down the pace and they had their options and were able to get the penalty, but everything turned out perfectly. He assures that the result “practically puts us in the round of 16.” «It is a great result against a great rival. “We want to go far, but we have to think about Italy,” he concluded.
