Ansu Fati wrote his name into the history books on Saturday by becoming Barcelona’s youngest goalscorer in La Liga history.

The 16-year-old headed home his first Barca goal to make it 1-1 against Osasuna just minutes after coming on as a substitute at half-time.

It was a brilliant moment for the youngster on just his second appearance for the first team. He made his debut in last week’s 5-2 win over Real Betis.

His goal means that he beats Bojan and Lionel Messi to become Barca’s youngest league goalscorer and is the third youngest in La Liga history:

Injuries to Messi, Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele have seen Ansu get his chance in the first team, and there is no doubt the teenager has grabbed the opportunity with both hands.
