Ansu Fati's individual highlights from his first Spain start show he is on his way to becoming a generational talent.

The Barcelona starlet enjoyed a breakout season in La Liga and was rewarded with a call-up for the latest Nations League games.

Fati started against Ukraine on Sunday night and left an impact with a sparkling first half display that saw him win a penalty and score a goal.

@LSComps has produced a video that focuses on the 17-year-old and his incredible performance.

It took less than two minutes for Fati to drift inside the Ukraine box and win a spot kick after being tripped.

But his best moment came just before the half hour mark.

The winger collected the ball on the left hand side just outside the area before cutting inside and placing a lovely left-footed effort in the bottom corner.

Fans have reacted to the performance and they think Fati is right up there with Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland as the next generation of greats.

Following the game, Spain captain Sergio Ramos paid tribute to Fati and dubbed him a "joy" to play with.

"Congratulations to him because he is a young player with desire," the Real Madrid man begun per OneFootball. "It is a joy to have these profile of players.

Meanwhile, manager Luis Enrique told reporters per Goal: "Ansu Fati is very happy and has reasons. He is only 17 years old and has to mature, but that in his second game with the national team he dares to do all this...

"He brings hard work and humility. He has trained at an impressive pace and I am glad that he goes home with this joy.

"At his age it is easy for these highs to go to your head, but he is mature enough to know that the path he is following is the best. He is very calm and humble."
