The Madrid and Spain captain was proud of the 17 year old Barca star
Ansu Fati was a sensation for the Spanish national team as he tore Ukraine apart in a 4-0 win. He became the youngest goalscorer for his country with a curled effort from outside the area in the 32nd minute.
And he won praise from all and sundry, including Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos, who scored twice himself.
"I am very happy for the result, the three points, in a very tough game, with a lot of aggression in the duels, high press. I'm also happy on a personal level," said Ramos.
"The coach picked a line up with a lot of young players who are starting to get experience and anyone can play and be a starter. We deserved the result, clean sheet, had a lot of the ball and I'd highlight many things.
"Congratulations to Ansu and all the youngsters who debuted, and they are doing so well. They're really young and have a lot of desire. They bring you freshness and youth, That should be the sensation, from Ansu and whoever else, they have experience from their clubs and bit by bit they should go making it that what you expect from them is not what you expect from a simple kid."
