Ansu Fati broke a 95-year-old record to become the youngest Spanish goalscorer after scoring in a 4-0 victory against Ukraine in the UEFA Nations League.
The previous record was set in 1925 by Juan Errazquin Tomás, who scored against Switzerland at the age of 18 years and 344 days.
At 17 years and 311 days, the Barcelona wonderkid is younger than what Wayne Rooney (17 years and 317 days) was when he broke the record for becoming England’s youngest goalscorer.
However, according to the Rec.Sport.Soccer Statistics Foundation (RSSSF), the record for the youngest ever male goalscorer in a FIFA recognised match is held by Burmese international Aung Kyaw Tun, who scored against Thailand in 2000 Tiger Cup, at the age of 14 years and 93 days.
Now 34, Tun went onto to gather only 13 more international caps. Now, he is the assistant manager of the Myanmar U-20 football team.
The record for the youngest female scorer is held by Alyssa Chin of Cayman Islands, who scored against Puerto Rico at the age of 13 years and 17 days.

Featuring on the RSSSFs list of youngest goalscorers is Gareth Bale for Wales. He scored against Slovakia, in a 5-1 victory, at the age of 17 years and 83 days in 2006.
For India, the record is held by Jerry Zirsanga, from Mizoram, back in May 2004. Zirsanga was only 16 years and 311 days old when he scored in a friendly against Kuwait. He could only grab four more international appearances since the feat. The goal became his only in the national colours.
