Recommended Posts

Fabrice Olinga Essono (born 12 May 1996), known as Olinga, is a Cameroonian footballer who plays for Málaga CF in La Liga, as a striker.

Club career

At the age of only 16, Olinga was called-up by first-team coach Manuel Pellegrini for the 2012–13 opener, away against Celta de Vigo: he came on as a 60th minute-substitute for Sebastián Fernández, and went on to score the game's only goal, becoming La Liga's youngest ever goalscorer at 16 years and 98 days, beating the previous record holder Iker Muniain by 191 days.

Four days later Olinga started again, appearing in a 2–0 win over Panathinaikos FC for the season's UEFA Champions League, and playing 70 minutes.
