Champions League: Bojan Krkic, the Baby Assassin

XXX XXXSenior Writer IApril 2, 2008

 Bojan Krkic became the second-youngest goalscorer in Champions League history when he gave Barcelona a 1-0 win over Shalke 04 in their quarter final, first leg at the Arena AufSchalke.

The goal came in the twelfth minute after Thierry Henry's cross set up the Spaniard, 17, who tapped the ball home from close range.

The youngest Champions League scorer is Peter Ofori-Quaye for Olympiacos in 1997, Krkic claims second place from Cesc Fabregas, of Arsenal, by one day.
