Starlet Vinicius breaks Messi's record with crucial El Clasico goal

Vinicius Jr scored the opening goal in Sunday’s Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid and in doing so stole a bit of modern history from a vaunted opponent.

The winger became the youngest person to score a goal in Spain’s most famous fixture in the 21st century, replacing Lionel Messi, who bagged a hat-trick in 2007.

Vinicius was just 19 years and 233 days in Sunday’s game. Opta reports Messi 19 years and 259 days old when he took over the game 13 years ago. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
