Ansu Fati, 17, on Saturday created history when he became the youngest goal-scorer in the history of El Clasico. The Barcelona prodigy scored in the eighth minute to equalize for his team after Real Madrid went ahead in the fifth minute through Federico Valverde.
Born in Guinea Bissau on October 31, 2002, Fati joined the youth set up of Sevilla aged just six, and four years later, he moved to the Barcelona youth teams. During the 2019-20 season, he made his debut with the first team and became the second-youngest ever to represent the Spanish giants aged 16 years and 298 days.
Wearing the number 31 jersey, the teen striker came in the 78th minute against Betis substituting Carles Perez.
He has been creating records since making his senior debut for Barca.
He’s the youngest to have scored in the La Liga for Barcelona achieving the feat against Osasuna in a 2-2 draw aged 16 years and 304 days.
In the final Group stage game of a Champions League last season, he came on in as a substitute in the 85th minute and scored the winner against Inter Milan at San Siro. He was 17 years and 40 days old at that time and thus became the European competition’s youngest ever goal-scorer.
Last month, he became the youngest ever to have scored for the Spanish national football team aged 17 years and 311 days.
