Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Youssoufa Moukoko, 16, becomes youngest ever player to represent and score for Germany U21s

BORUSSIA DORTMUND starlet Youssoufa Moukoko made history on his international debut with Germany's U21s.

Moukoko, 16, became the youngest ever player to represent and score for Germany's youngsters during Thursday's 6-0 triumph in San Marino.

The young centre-forward netted a brace in the first half as the visitors registered a 5-0 lead at the break in their European Championship qualifier.

He broke the record held by Florian Wirtz, who made his international debut at 17 years and 159 days.

The Dortmund sensation also became the first ever 16-year-old to play for Germany's Under-21 side when manager Stefan Kuntz named him in his starting line-up.

Moukoko, though, remains humble as he said after the match: "I haven't achieved anything yet.

"I am only at the beginning of my road and it is far from the end.

"I have to find the connection faster and play more in the service of the team."


This is not the first time Moukoko has made headlines as he broke the record for the youngest player to appear in the Bundesliga last season on the day after his 16th birthday.

The German then became the youngest ace to play in a Champions League match at 16 years and 18 days.

The striker also claimed the record as the youngest goalscorer in the German top flight when he hit the net during Dortmund's 2-1 loss at Union Berlin last December.

The teenager joins a long list of young players who recently flourished at the Signal Iduna Park.

Those include star striker Erling Haaland as well as England internationals Jadon Sancho and Jude Bellingham.
