Quiz: Ansu Fati And The Ten Teens Rocking The Champions League Record Books

The Barcelona boy became the youngest goalscorer in UCL history this week, at 17 years and 40 days old

It was a record that stood for 20 years - until last night. Barcelona's Ansu Fati became the youngest Champions League goalscorer, as the Blaugrana recorded a 2-1 win away at Inter Milan.

Five minutes from normal time at the San Siro, the 17-year-old make an appearance coming on for Carles Pérez.

Just sixty seconds later he wrote his name into the record books.

Fati picked up on teammate Luis Suarez’ lay-off in a smart one-two to deftly aim into the bottom left-hand corner, past the outstretching Samir Handanovic, the baby-faced marksman being immediately congratulated by his Barca teammates for his winner.

Not only did the strike condemn Internazionale to a Europa League campaign, but place Fati himself - at the age of 17 years old and 40 days - atop the list of youngest ever goal scorers in Champions League history, breaking the previous record by a stonking 155 days.

Fati recently signed a brand-spanking new contract, not too bad for a teenager who has just become eligible to learn how to drive. He was born on Halloween 2002, the day after Jam Master Jay was killed. 

The immortal ‘Dilemma’ collaboration between Nelly and Kelly Rowland was still ‘the chuuune’, the second Harry Potter film was mere days from being released (the one where Harry and Ron turn into Crabbe and Goyle and fight a big snake), and Michael Jackson was about to dangle a baby off a balcony.

Feel old yet? 

But who are the other youngsters who now sit beneath Ansu Fati in the top 10 youngest goal scorers in the Champions League? Test yourself right now with a seven minute time limit..
