Nations League: Ansu Fati, 17, scores for Spain v Ukraine

Ansu Fati
Juan Errazquin was the previous record holder – he scored against Switzerland in 1925 at the age of 18 years and 344 days

Barcelona forward Ansu Fati broke a 95-year national record to become Spain’s youngest goalscorer at the age of 17 years and 311 days against Ukraine.

He had already won an early penalty, scored by Sergio Ramos, as he became the youngest player to start a Nations League match.

Real Madrid defender Ramos also added a header and has now incredibly scored 10 goals in his last 15 caps.

Fati, who was born in Guinea-Bissau but moved to Seville aged six with his family, became Spain’s youngest player in 84 years when he made his debut in last Thursday’s 1-1 draw away to Germany.

Juan Errazquin was the previous record holder – he scored against Switzerland in 1925 at the age of 18 years and 344 days.

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.
