The Cameroonian striker Youssoufa Moukoko broke a new record on Thursday after emerging as the youngest player to play in World Cup for Germany.
The Dortmund striker will turn 18 on November 20th, the day of the tournament’s opening match.
Born in Yaoundé, Moukoko arrived Germany at the age of 10 and became the youngest player to play in the German top flight.
This season, he has scored 6 goals in 13 league games.
Moukoko chose to play for Germany while the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon were still hoping to get him a few weeks ago.
