The Czech Republic’s opening goal was the quickest Luis Enrique’s side have conceded in 39 games at the helm, but Gavi leveled things up at the end of the first half to become Spain’s young top scorer at 17 years 304 days.
The previous record holder was his Barcelona teammate Ansu Fati, who scored against Ukraine in Valdebebas at 17 years 311 days.

The teenage midfielder is used to setting records with the Spanish national team. In October last year, he became the youngest player to play for Spain at 17 years and 62 days, beating the record set by Angel Zupieta in 1936.
