Alexander Isak, the prodigy who thrived in La Liga, can thrill Newcastle

Sweden’s youngest goalscorer has already overcome career hurdles and has the free-flowing class to live up to his £59m feeAlexander Isak has joined Newcastle for a club-record fee but anyone who believes the pressure that comes with a move of that magnitude may faze the 22-year-old should think again. Because if there is one thing Isak has been doing throughout his career it is breaking records.In January 2017, on his second appearance for Sweden, he became his country’s youngest goalscorer at the age of 17. He took one touch with the outside of his right foot in the penalty area before a slightly scuffed shot with his left found its way past the Slovakia goalkeeper (a certain Martin Dubravka), beating a record that had stood for 105 years. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as a comparison, scored his first international goal at the age of 20.
