Ansu Fati made yet more history on Tuesday night against Inter Milan as the 17-year-old became the youngest goalscorer in Champions League history.
The forward missed Saturday’s win over Real Mallorca due to injury but was back in the squad for the trip to the San Siro and came on after 84 minutes for Carles Perez.
Ansu took less than three minutes to make an impact, firing home the winner with a low shot that crept past Samir Handanovic and squeezed just inside the post to make it 2-1.
The goal means he beats Peter Ofori-Quaye’s record (17 years and 194 days) to become the competition’s youngest goalscorer at the age of 17 years and 40 days.
