Most "nuts" aren't actually nuts. I'm pretty sure almonds, walnuts, pistachios, donuts, hex nuts, butternut squash, etc. aren't nuts.

Quiz is outdated, Ansu Fati isn’t the youngest goalscorer for Spain. Lamine Yamal is now in that position. Fun fact though, he also has African roots, but in Equatorial Guinea instead.
