Barcelona forward, Ansu Fati, on Tuesday turned into the most youthful player to score in the Champions League, when he got the victor against Inter Milan on Tuesday.

Fati fell off the seat at the San Siro, to score in the 87th moment to seal a 2-1 triumph.

Matured 17 years, 40 days, the goal sees Fati take the record from Peter Ofori-Quaye, who was 17 years, 194 days old, when he scored his first Champions League goal for Olympiacos in 1997.

“I’ve quite recently been told [I have broken the record]. I am overly content with the goal and with the success,” Fati told columnists after the match.

“It’s a fantasy. Everything is by all accounts occurring so rapidly. It’s just about having a good time and gaining from the best. Each time I get an opportunity, I will attempt to take it, either by scoring goals or by buckling down.”

Depicting the objective, Fati stated: “I gave the ball to Suarez, and he gave it back to me. What’s more, when I scored, I was astonished in light of the fact that the entire arena was quiet. I was thinking: ‘What have I quite recently done?’ But I am extremely upbeat.”
