Cameroon-born Youssoufa Moukoko has become the youngest player in the history of the UEFA champions league after he made his debut for German side Borussia Dortmund.
After staying on the bench against Club Brugge and Lazio, Moukoko set the new record coming on as a 58th minute substitute in Tuesday clash against Zenith St Petersburg when his side was 2#1 up replacing Felix Passlack.
At 16 years and 18 days old, Youssoufa Moukoko beats the record held by Nigeria’s Celestine Babayaro who held the previous record having played at the age of 16 and 87 days in 1994.
The Cameroon-born made history in the German Bundesliga when his debut in Dortmund’s 5#2 victory over Hertha Berlin.
The prolific nature of the young lad in front of goal through the youth teams portrayed him as one of the best of his generation.
In the current under-19 season in Germany, Youssoufa Moukoko has scored 10 goals in three matches.
