Ansu Fati has been talking about what it felt like to score his first Champions League goal and become the tournament’s youngest ever goalscorer in the process.

The 17-year-old netted the winner against Inter Milan at the San Siro on Tuesday shortly after coming on as a substitute with a goal that knocked the Italians out.

It’s another record for Fati in a dream season for the teenager, and he could not hide his delight after the match.

“I give it to Suarez and he gives it back,” he said. “And when I score I was surprised because the whole stadium was silent. I was thinking: ‘What have I just done?’. But I am really happy.

”Every time I get a chance, I will try to take it, with goals or, at least, by working hard.

“It’s a dream, everything seems to be going really quickly, now it’s just about enjoying myself and learning from the best.”

The goal means Barcelona go through as unbeaten group winners from a tough group, while Borussia Dortmund qualify as runners-up and Inter drop into the Europa League.
