The Barça midfielder scored a similar goal to the one against Elche with the Barça U16B team
Riqui Puig's goal this Sunday against Elche was his first in official competition with the first team. The goal came from a header after a great cross from De Jong which allowed Ronald Koeman's team to cement their 2-0 away win.
This, however, was not Riqui Puig's first goal with his head for Barça. The Catalan midfielder also scored with a header when he played for the U16B side. Almost seven years ago, back in February 2014 in a game against Vilanova, Riqui scored in his first season at Barça.
Other debutants with a header
Riqui Puig is not the only player who has scored his first goal for the blaugranes with a header. On the list we find names such as Van Bommel, Xavi, Ibrahimovic, Neymar, Paco Alcácer and more recently Lenglet and Ansu Fati, with his goal against Osasuna at El Sadar.
