Teenager Phil Foden became Manchester City's youngest goalscorer in UEFA Champions League history as the defending Premier League champions put on a scintillating performance to thrash Schalke 7-0 in the round of 16 second leg on Tuesday.
The 18-year-old latched on to a Leroy Sane throughball to score City's sixth goal of the night and in the process became the club's youngest and fourth Englishman overall behind Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jadon Sancho and Theo Walcott to net in the Champions League.
"Every time I come on I just try to enjoy my football. 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," Foden told BT Sport as quoted by Goal.

“People say ‘Foden should be on loan’. Phil Foden is NOT going to go on loan. For as long as I am here, he will be close to me because he is an incredible talent."#MCFC 🔵 pic.twitter.com/hoHlLmUst0
"They are all great lads and great players so it is just a pleasure to be here."
Pep Guardiola's side broke a slew of records during their win on the night, registering the biggest aggregate win for an English side in the Champions League and are only second behind Bayern Munich who beat Sporting Lisbon 12-1 on aggregate in 2008-09.
City's win also ensured that they became the third English side to progress to the quarter-finals of the competition, the first time it has happened since 2010-11.
