The hype surrounding Borussia Dortmund starlet Youssoufa Moukoko ramped up a further notch this morning, after the 14-year-old ran riot on his debut for the club’s U19s.
Moukoko is widely-regarded as one of the finest young talents in world football.
The teen first began to turn heads across Europe after making his debut for Borussia Dortmund’s U17s back in 2017, at the age of 12.
And Moukoko’s staggering goalscoring exploits, despite his tender years, subsequently saw the German hitman promoted to BVB’s U17 setup last season.
To say that the teenage hitman has since lit up the German youth scene even further, meanwhile, would be putting it lightly.
Incredibly, last season saw Moukoko go on to find the back of the net 46 times in 25 appearances, all while playing 3 years above his age group.

Moukoko runs riot
As a result, it came as little surprise to see the powerful young striker make another step up for the coming campaign.
Moukoko has been integrated into Dortmund’s U19 setup, now taking to the pitch against opposing players a ridiculous 5 years his senior.
But when it comes to the prolific starlet, age really does appear to be just a number.
Moukoko made his debut for BVB’s U19s earlier today, in a Bundesliga meeting with Wuppertal FC.
And, amid a 9-2 victory, the 14-year-old went on to find the net 6 (SIX) times. This included a hat-trick in the space of 28 minutes.
Safe to say, Dortmund appear to have a very, very real star in the making on their hands.
