Spanish national coach Luis Enrique is deeply impressed by Ansu Fati. The seventeen-year-old top talent wrote history on Sunday by scoring the youngest player ever for the Spanish national team in the Nations League match with Ukraine (4-0).

Fati: ‘This is a good moment for me’

Fati made his international debut against Ukraine and listened to that with the 3-0 just before half time. He was accurate with a beautiful long shot that fell through the post and thus became the youngest ever goalscorer for Spain at 17 years and 311 days.

“This is not normal. It is incredible that he already puts so much guts into his game at his age. You rarely see such a thing”, said Enrique afterwards about Fati, who will be the pupil of the new coach Ronald Koeman at FC Barcelona next season. .

“I must admit that I am a little surprised. Expectations are high now and we have to manage that well. But I am sure it will not go to his head, he is very humble.”

Fati, who preferred Spain to his native Guinea-Bissau and Portugal and only acquired Spanish nationality last year, remained sober under all the accolades. He was especially grateful to Enrique for the trust he places in him.

“From the first day I was here, I was welcomed with open arms. I will continue to work hard and if I get the chance, I will try to seize it. Anyway, this is a good moment for me and I hope that many more will follow. “

Fati was plucked from the youth academy of Seville by FC Barcelona in 2012. He has played 33 games so far for the Catalans, where he is a teammate of Frenkie de Jong, scoring eight goals and one assist.
