According to “Eviralnews“, Jens Lehmann is the oldest player who has reached the semi-finals of the European Nations Cup so far. On Tuesday night, this former national player lost his record.

The former Arsenal goalkeeper was the oldest player ever to play in a European Cup semi-final. At the age of 38 years and 228 days, Lehmann achieved this statistic in the 3-2 semi-final victory of the European Cup of Nations 2008 against Turkey, and tonight, a Spanish player set a new record.

Jesus Navas achieved this record by being in the main team under the guidance of Luis Delafuente. He reached this statistic at the age of 38 years and 231 days in the semi-final match of the 2024 European Nations Cup against France.

Navas was therefore three days older than Lehmann, who still holds the record for the oldest player in a European Cup final. In 2008, the goalkeeper lost 1-0 in the final against Spain.

At that time, Navas, who has now played 56 times for the French national team, was not yet in the Spanish squad. Navas made his international debut on 14 November 2009 in a friendly against Argentina.

However, if Navas plays in the final of the European Nations Cup, he can take this record as well. He replaced Dani Carvajal, who was suspended for the quarter-final against France after receiving a red card, and Navas should be on the bench if he returns to the squad. It remains to be seen whether he will be in the starting line-up for the final game or not.
