Manchester City teenager Marcos Lopes scored on his debut against Watford on Saturday.

Even the player himself said he was 'stunned' at making his debut and scoring in the 3-0 FA Cup win, coming on in the 86th minute and netting late on.

But who is he? In case the youngster's existence had not been known to you prior to this weekend, we have a short factfile to bring you up to speed. Here are five facts about him...

1) Lopes wears City's number 64 shirt and was signed from Benfica for one million Euros in 2011.

2) He was born in Brazil but moved to Portugal aged four and plays for their under-19 side where he has three goals in four games.

3) Just 17-years-old, when he was born in 1995, Niall Quinn, Uwe Rosler and Giorgi Kinkladze were playing for City.

4) He is an attacking midfielder who prefers to play centrally as a traditional 'number 10', and is left-footed.

5) His nickname is 'Rony' - After Ronaldinho. No pressure there then...
