Ansu Fati Scores On His First Professional Start For Spain

Barcelona forward Ansu Fati has become the youngest player to score for Spain – at the age of 17 years and 311 days – in their Nations League match against Ukraine.

The La Masia product is also the youngest ever scorer in the UEFA Champions League alongside being the youngest player to score for Barcelona in La Liga.

Fati had already won an early penalty, scored by Sergio Ramos, when he curled in off the post from 20 yards.

Fati had earlier set a record as the youngest player to start a Nations League match.

Real Madrid defender Ramos has scored 10 goals in his last 15 caps.

Ethan Ampadu – who played for Wales against Bulgaria earlier on Sunday – was the previous youngest player to start a Nations League game, aged 17 years and 357 days against the Republic of Ireland in 2018.
