Guinea-Bissau teenager Ansu Fati has secured his place in the history books of the Champions League.
At 17 years & 40 days old, Fati is now the youngest-ever goalscorer in the history of the Champions League.
Fati was a candidate to play a starting role in Barcelona's 2-1 in against Inter Milan in the San Siro last night with Barça's place in the round of 16 secured and Lionel Messi being given the night off.
Instead, he had to be content with a substitute role. Fati would make a decisive cameo after being introduced in the 85th minute to score the winner a minute later and make Champions League history in the process.
He beats the previous mark held by Peter Ofori-Quaye, who scored or Olympiacos at the age of 17 years and 195 days old back in 1997, five years before Fati was even born.
Barça now shifts their attention to LaLiga business when they travel to Real Sociedad this weekend ahead of El Clasico on Wednesday 18 December. Ansu Fati has made a case for being involved in both matchday squads and we'll be following his progress keenly.
