The 17-year-old came on at half-time during the Iberian nation's 1-1 UEFA Nations League draw with Germany, becoming the third-youngest debutant in Spain's history.

Overall, he is the 800th player to don the iconic Spain shirt and the first born in Guinea-Bissau to do so.

Aged 17 years and 308 days, he also became the youngest player to make a first appearance for Spain in 84 years.

Only Pedro Regueiro, who debuted at the age of 17 years and 161 days in 1927, and Angel Zubieta, who was 17 years and 282 days on his debut in 1936, were younger than Fati.

The FC Barcelona starlet had the ball in the back of the net in the 92nd minute, but the goal was ruled out after Sergio Ramos had committed a foul in the build-up.
