The ten youngest players to score at Wembley as Man Utd pair join exclusive club

Kobbie Mainoo and Alejandro Garnacho joined an exclusive club when the two Manchester United players scored at Wembley on Saturday. 

The two youngsters were on the scoresheet as the Red Devils shocked Manchester City to win 2-1 and secure a 13th FA Cup trophy for the club.

The pair are just the 30th and 31st teenagers to score a goal at the national stadium in its entire history, while only six players have ever managed to score in the final of the competition at the ground before them.

Garnacho and Mainoo, both of whom are 19 years old, are not the youngest ever players to score at Wembley, though. That accolade belongs to Endrick after the 17-year-old found the net for Brazil in a friendly win over England in March of this year.

The only other non-Englishman in the top ten is a certain other Brazilian striker by the name of Ronaldo Nazario.

The ten youngest players to ever score at Wembley Stadium:

  1. Endrick – 17y, 246d – Brazil vs England (Friendly, 2024)
  2. Norman Whiteside – 17y, 323d – Man Utd vs Liverpool (League Cup final, 1983)
  3. Norman Whiteside – 18y, 19d – Man Utd vs Brighton (FA Cup final replay, 1983)
  4. Nick Powell – 18y, 65d – Crewe vs Cheltenham (Fourth-tier play-off final, 2012)
  5. Damian Spencer – 18y, 210d – Bristol City vs Stoke (EFL Trophy final, 2000)
  6. John Sisson – 18y, 215d – West Ham vs Preston (FA Cup final, 1964)
  7. Max Clayton – 18y, 242d – Crewe vs Southend (EFL Trophy final, 2013)
  8. Julian Joachim – 18y, 254d – Leicester vs Swindon (Second-tier play-off final, 1993)
  9. Ronaldo – 18y, 262d – Brazil vs England (Friendly, 1995)
  10. Peter Barnes – 18y, 264d – Man City vs Newcastle (League Cup final, 1976)
