Zaniolo Roma's youngest Italy scorer

Nicolò Zaniolo has become Roma's youngest ever goal-scorer for Italy, beating Daniele De Rossi's record.

Zaniolo scored in the ninth minute in Palermo during this evening's final Euro 2020 qualifier against Armenia.

It means he has now become Roma's youngest ever goal scorer for Italy, overtaking icon Daniele De Rossi.

De Rossi was 21 years and 42 days old when he scored for Italy against Norway in a 2006 World Cup qualifier, coincidentally also in Palermo.

Zaniolo has now beaten that record, with the current Roma player aged 20 years and 139 days.

Other Roma players on the list include:

Antonio Cassano - 21 years and 123 days

Mattia Destro - 21 years and 175 days

Carlo Ancelotti - 21 years and 210 days.
