Phil Foden became Manchester City’s youngest Champions League goalscorer as the Premier League champions put seven past Schalke to progress to the quarter-finals.
The 18-year-old latched onto a through pass by Leroy Sane – his third assist of the night – and rounded goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann before slotting into an empty net.
At 18 years and 288 days, Foden is the youngest Englishman to net in the competition’s knock-out stage, and fourth overall behind Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jadon Sancho and Theo Walcott.
“Every time I come on I just try to enjoy my football,” he told BT Sport. “I try to concentrate and improve. I enjoy scoring goals.
“You are learning all the time in the changing rooms, on the touchline and when you come on. I am learning every day. I will try to keep improving each day.
