Spain 4-0 Ukraine: The Ansu Fati show begins here

He scored to become the country's youngest scorer and was a star from the word go

Ansu Fati became the youngest goalscorer in the history of the Spanish national team as Spain walloped Ukraine in Madrid to go top of their Nations League group.

He won a penalty for Sergio Ramos to convert, nearly scored an overhead kick and then curled home from outside the box to net Spain’s third after Ramos headed in a second.

Ferran Torres finished off the rout but this night was all about 17 year old starlet Ansu, on his first start for his country.

“We are really happy, above all for the team’s win,” said Ansu after the game. “We played a great game and have to continue in this way.

“It’s a pride to work with Luis (Enrique) and all the players that are here. They have received me with open arms from the first day.”

It’s a pride for Spain to have you, Ansu, after a performance like this.

"It was a great night, we’re leaders and the team was best from the first minute," said Luis Enrique.

"Ansu is happy and he has reason to be. He’s only 17 and still has to mature, but this is his second game with the national team and he dared to do all that.

"He brings hard work and humility, he trained at a high level and I’m happy he’s going home with this joy."

Ramos had something to celebrate too, netting his 22nd and 23rd goals for Spain, taking him level with Alfredo Di Stefano - the eighth all-time top scorer for La Roja.
