Spain Could Violate German Law if Lamine Yamal Plays Again at Euro 2024

Spain May Breach German Law if Yamal Plays at Euro 2024

Spain risks breaking German laws if Lamine Yamal participates in their final group stage match against Albania on Monday.

At just 16, Yamal has been a standout at Euro 2024, showing potential to become one of the world’s best. Despite his talent, his age has prompted jokes about balancing football with schoolwork, as he continues his mandatory education even while in Germany. This situation, however, poses a problem for Spain regarding his eligibility to play.

Spain Faces Potential Fine Over Yamal’s Participation

While Spain naturally wants to field their best players, coach Luis de la Fuente may have to exclude Yamal from the squad for their match against Albania. German law prohibits anyone under 18 from working past 20:00, with athletes granted an extension until 23:00.

Spain’s match, starting at 21:00 German time, could exceed this limit. Additionally, if Spain advances and any knockout games starting at 21:00 go into extra time, they would breach the curfew, risking a potential £30k fine. However, reports suggest the German government might be lenient and may not impose the fine.

If Spain tops Group B, they will play against the third-placed team from Group A, D, E, or F, with a scheduled kickoff at 20:00.
