Barcelona sensation Ansu Fati breaks record in Spain’s win over Ukraine

Talented teenager Ansu Fati became the youngest player to ever score for Spain in Sunday night's UEFA Nations League clash against Ukraine.

Fati, at the age of 17 years and 311 days old, showed exactly why he is considered "non-transferable" by the Catalan giants with a lively display in which he tormented the visitors from the very start in Madrid.

The teenager won a penalty inside two minutes of the match following a clever piece of skill, with Sergio Ramos firing home from the spot.

Real Madrid icon Ramos then added a second with a looping header to score his 23rd goal for his country, a strike which made him to highest scoring defender in the history of international football.

But not even Ramos could take the limelight from Fati, who soon made it 3-0 with a fine curling shot from the edge of the penalty area that found the net off the post.

New Manchester City signing Ferran Torres added a fourth in the second half when he scored his first international goal within 10 minutes of coming off the bench.

Spain's victory saw them take control of Group A4 of the Nations League as Germany's rather disappointing form in the competition continued.

Having been pegged back by a late equaliser from Spain's Jose Gaya on Thursday, the Germans have now gone six Nations League matches without a win having been held to a 1-1 draw by Switzerland in Basel.

Manchester City's Ilkay Gundogan gave the Germans the lead in just the 14th minute of the match, but they were unable to press home that advantage.

Switzerland stayed in the contest and eventually equalised through Silvan Widner just before the hour mark.
