Ansu Fati becomes youngest ever Champions League goal scorer
The Barcelona forward came off the bench to break Inter's hearts with a goal in the 86th minute.
Rising Barcelona star Ansu Fati became the youngest ever scorer in the Champions League at 17 years and 40 days, when he beat Inter Milan keeper Handanovic from distance to make it 1-2 to Barcelona in the 86th minute of Tuesday evening's Champions League match in Milan. Ansu Fati was born on 31 October 2002.
Ansu Fati's goal destroyed Inter's faint hopes of a comeback that would have given them the chance of a place in the last 16 in the Champions League.
Ansu Fati has become the youngest player at 17 years and 40 days to score in the Champions League. To do it away to Inter makes it even more special for the @FCBarcelona youngster. 👏🏻👏🏻— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) December 10, 2019

European Cup youngest scorer
Ansu Fati is not, however, the youngest scorer in the entire history of the tournament. That honour goes to Włodzimierz Lubański of Polish club Górnik Zabrze who was just 16 years and 258 days old when he notched against FK Dukla Prague on 13 November 1963 in the first leg of the first round of the tournament. Górnik Zabrze won 2-0 that night, but crashed out in the second leg, losing 4-1.
'Włodek' went on to become the Poland national team's second all-time highest goal scorer with 48, behind only Robert Lewandowski, currently on 61.
