Francesco Camarda becomes the youngest debutant in Serie A history

by admin

It’s a moment that will make millions around the world feel ancient.

Francesco Camarda, the highly-rated teenager from Milan, became the youngest debutant in Serie A history on Saturday night when he came on as second-half substitute against Fiorentina, aged 15 years, 8 months and 15 days.

And as he made his way onto the pitch as the Rossoneri held a narrow 1-0 lead, Camarda wore a huge grin on his face as thousands inside the San Siro gave their new wonderkid a reception to remember.

Check out the wholesome footage below:

Camarda, who replaced Luka Jovic in the 82nd minute, was invited to train with AC Milan‘s first team earlier this month as they continue to struggle with injuries.

Olivier Giroud is currently suspended for two matches after being sent off in their clash against Lecce, while Noah Okafor picked up a knock on international duty with Switzerland.

Both players missed Saturday’s clash against Fiorentina as a result, and Pioli placed his faith in Carmada, who holds a quite remarkable record at youth level.

In fact, the Italian striker is said to have scored 485 goals in 89 games for Milan, which includes 247 goals in 40 games during the 2017/18 campaign, when he was just eight-years-old.

Camarda recently became the youngest Italian to score in the UEFA Youth League at 15 years and 195 days, when he netted a brace against Newcastle United.

And soon, Camarda made more history by becoming the youngest player in history to score in all three major Under-19 tournaments.

Remember the name, folks.
