Kobbie Mainoo makes Euro 2024 debut

The 19-year-old came on as an 86th-minute substitute for match-winner Jude Bellingham, helping Gareth Southgate's side secure a 1-0 victory over Serbia at the Veltins Arena.

During his brief nine minutes on the pitch, the Stockport-born midfielder completed two touches with 100 per cent passing accuracy, earning an overall rating of 6.5 from Sofascore.

Mainoo's heartwarming moment with sisters

After the game, Kobbie chose to share his special moment with his family. He was seen with his two sisters, Ama and Efia, savouring the occasion.

In a photo circulating on social media, spotted by Sports Brief, Mainoo is pictured between Ama and Efia, all three smiling brightly.

Meet Kobbie Mainoo's siblings: Jordan, Efia and Ama

According to Essentially Sports, Kobbie Mainoo's sister Efia runs a business in Manchester, while his other sister Ama studied Sports Business Management.

Interestingly, Kobbie might not be the most famous member of his family. His brother, Jordan Mainoo-Hames, is well-known in the fashion industry.

Jordan has achieved success as a model, working with renowned brands such as Vogue and Louis Vuitton.

Before his modelling career, he played football for clubs like Manchester City and Rochdale, but a series of injuries cut his career short.

This led him to transition to modelling, where he has enjoyed significant success.

Sports Brief highlights nine players of Ghanaian descent who will represent their nations at the Euros.

Included in this group is Manchester United's Kobbie Mainoo, who, like the other eight players, had the option to choose to play for Ghana.
