Barcelona’s Fati Breaks 95-Year Record As Spain

by OtownGist

Barcelona young forward Ansu Fati became Spain’s youngest goalscorer in history, after scoring in their 4-0 win against Ukraine in Sunday’s League A, Group 4 of the UEFA Nations League clash in Madrid.

Fati marked his first international start with a fine effort to make it 3-0 in the 32nd minute.

And at aged 17 years and 311 days, Fati became the youngest player to net for Spain, breaking the record that was set in 1925 by Juan Errazquin, who was 18 years and 344 days old when he struck three times against Switzerland.

City’s Ilkay Gundogan put Germany 1-0 ahead on 14 minutes before Silvan Widmer equalised for Switzerland in the 58th minute.
