UEFA Nations League: Ruthless Spain thrash Ukraine, Germany held in Switzerland

UEFA Nations League: Ruthless Spain thrash Ukraine, Germany held in Switzerland”

Ansu Fati is already feeling at home in the Spain camp after his first two global appearances.

The talented attacker became Spain's youngest ever scorer - at 17 years and 311 days - as he found the back of the net in La Roja's 4-0 thumping of Ukraine in the Nations League on Sunday.

"I congratulated Ansu, he's a very young player who gives us that freshness and desire which we need".

"From the first day I've been welcomed with open arms and all the confidence in the world".

"To continue working, as always, with humility, and everything will come".

It took the 17-year-old less than two minutes to make a huge impact on global football.

At the end of the match, Ramos spoke about the win: "I'm very happy with the result and the three points, it was a very professional performance".

It was the second time in as many matches that Joachim Loew's team had failed to capitalise on going ahead after conceding a leveller in the seventh minute of stoppage time against Spain on Thursday.

Now, attention will turn back to club football where Fati will be working under Ronald Koeman at the Camp Nou this season.

"I'm not scared. I'm sure it won't go to his head, he's very humble", he told a news conference about Fati's first Spain start.

"The coach is the one who decides [who plays]".

"I will train hard, if I have the opportunity I will try to take advantage of it".
