Ansu Fati makes his first International start
Barcelona’s Star Ansu Fati, who played his first international match against Germany on Thursday, became the youngest goalscorer at 17 years and 311 days at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, just before half-time.
Ansu Fati had previously won a penalty from which Ramos opened the scoring and the Real Madrid legend doubled the lead at this familiar venue, which is part of Los Blancos’ Valdebebas training complex.
Ferran Torres scored for La Rosa (Spanish National Football team) with a well-controlled finish at the 84th minute, as Spain took four points from two matches to sit at the top of Group A4.

Fati’s quick leg proved just thirty minutes for Serti Kravtsov, with Andrey Pyatov not catching Ramos’s penalty on the left-hand corner. Ramos doubled the lead with a superb looking header from Dani Olmo’s cross before Fati looked brilliant as he fired into the lower-right corner of the post.
Olmo made his international debut, removing the smart stop after an hour from Piatow, while Gerard Moreno’s ball was hoisted from behind the net, which was given offside. Spain was the dominant force of international football during a golden period, returning two European championships and the World Cup between 2008 and 2012.
The 17-year-old Fati is a generational talent who could be the driving force behind the new crop of budding players. Ramos matches his country’s most capped player Di Stefano Ramos, who will always be considered a veteran of Spain and his brace means that he is now joint eighth in the list of Spain’s highest goalscorers with fellow Real Madrid player Alfredo di Stefano – whose name was given to the stadium.
Fati did not feel the weight of international expectations. It was Fati’s first start in international football, but he played with the grit and quality. He is ambitious enough to become a Spanish legend and he’s working towards it. A small appreciation could be given to fellow wunderkind Joao Felix (Portugal forward) who announced himself in the International Football arena!! Check out some of Ansu Fati’s records here.
