Barcelona Wonderkid Ansu Fati Scores Fine Volley After Beautiful Frenkie De Jong Assist

Ansu Fati demonstrated just why he's seen as one of the most exciting youngsters around today with a fine goal for Barcelona against Ferencvaros tonight.

The 17-year-old is now firmly one of the first names on the teamsheet for the Blaugrana and notched his side's second goal in the 5-1 thumping to kick off their Champions League group campaign.

His appearance against Borussia Dortmund saw him make history as the club's youngest ever Champions League player aged just 16.

Incredibly, he's so young that Barcelona had to ask his parents' permission for him to make his debut against Real Betis last term because of La Liga's restrictions on under age players appearing in night games.

He also had a brief spell out with growing pains as part of his progression through puberty but his development on the pitch has been nothing short of sensational.
