At 16 years and 6 days old, the footballer Dario Essugo, who was born on 03-14-2005, has become the youngest player to make his debut with Sporting Lisbon, Portugal's first team. His debut was triumphant and ended in tears of emotion. Now he could dethrone Cristiano Ronaldo as the youngest to score for Lisbon.

With the match still to be decided, as The Lions won 1-0 at Vitória de Guimaraes, in the 84th minute Ruben Amorim brought the young Dario Essugo onto the field, who last Sunday had turned 16 years old. His entry into the field was most emotional, since he replaced his idol, the international media Joao Mário, with whom Dario Essugo had taken a photo years ago that he boasts on his social networks.

When the referee whistled the end of the game and Sporting scored the victory to continue as leader of the Portuguese League, the Angolan midfielder could not take it anymore and collapsed in a sea of tears. Quickly, all his teammates hugged him, who still did not enter himself with happiness for having fulfilled his great dream of wearing his team's jersey. He is a very gifted footballer who plays for the Alvalade quarry and has also made his debut with the U-15 and U-16 teams in Portugal.

For now, he has managed to make history with Sporting, by dethroning the record of Santamaría, who made his debut with the Lisbon club at 16 years, 11 months and 12 days. Even ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo, who played for the first time with the Verdiblanca elastic at 17 years, 6 months and 9 days.

What must happen to snatch the record from Cristiano Ronaldo

Of course, Dario Essugo still has a year and eight months to score with the first team and dethrone Cristiano Ronaldo, who is the youngest player to score a goal with Sporting, since he did so with 17 years, 8 months and 2 days. Last Wednesday, Dário Cassia Luís Essugo had signed his first professional contract and now sees his debut as "the beginning to continue working and help the club achieve its goals", he assured at the end of the match.
