At 16, Cameroun Born Youssoufa Moukoko Becomes Youngest Ever To Score In Bundesliga

Cameroun-born Borussia Dortmund’s teenage striker, Youssoufa Moukoko, became the youngest player to score in the Bundesliga but ended up on the losing side as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat at Union Berlin after conceding two set-piece goals on Friday.

The 16-year-old scored on the hour mark, latching on to a Marco Reus through ball and lashing home to break the record set by Florian Wirtz, who netted for Bayer Leverkusen against Bayern Munich aged 17 years and 34 days in May 2020.

Dortmund, who sacked coach Lucien Favre last week after a humiliating 5-1 defeat by promoted VfB Stuttgart and replaced him with assistant coach Edin Terzic, were lacklustre throughout as they slumped to their fifth defeat of the season.
