German Labour Laws Could Prevent Lamine Yamal from Playing Full Time in Final

But it is highly uncertain that Lamine Yamal will be giving his full 90 minutes to Spain because as per the German Labour Law minors are not allowed to work after 8 PM and for the minor athletes the deadline is 11 PM. As per the local time, the Spain vs England UEFA Euro 2024 final has a scheduled start time of 9 PM local time. The 16-year-old winger for Spain who will be turning 17 a day before the Euro 2024 final, could be substituted for the second half. If Spain does not substitute Lamine Yamal, then they will be paying a hefty amount for breaking German law. Ronald Araujo, Darwin Nunez and Other Uruguay Players Engage in Brawl With Colombian Fans After Final Whistle at Copa America 2024 Semi-Final, Video Goes Viral.
