Spain striker Ansu Fati became the youngest goalscorer for the national team in history, as the 17-year-old inspired Luis Enrique’s side to a resounding 4-0 home victory over Ukraine in the UEFA Nations League on Sunday.

Spain captain Sergio Ramos scored the opening goal with a third-minute penalty after Fati won the free-kick and the defender also doubled his side’s advantage coming home in the 29th minute.

Fati had threatened to score from the start and eventually got a goal worthy of his inspiring performance by shooting out of the post from outside the box in the 33rd minute, after coming close with a kick over and another effort earlier.
