Meet the 12-year-old scoring loads of goals for Borussia Dortmund Under-17s

Youssoufa Moukoko is quickly making a name for himself in Germany

At 12-years-old we spent most of time trading Pokemon cards and testing whether Sunny-D really did make your urine glow in the dark.

Not Youssoufa Moukoko though.

He’s scored eight goals in three games for Borussia Dortmund Under-17s.

We know what you’re thinking…

The Cameroonian wonderkid has been making headlines ever since he joined Dortmund’s academy from St Pauli.

Moukoko scored four goals in his most recent game against Viktoria Cologne to take his tally to eight for the season.

Last season he bagged 33 goals in 21 games for Dortmund’s Under-15s leading to a promotion up the age groups.

Moukoko can handle himself physically and is not noticeably smaller or lighter than the other lads in the squad.

As some of you may have suspected by now, there have been doubts over the legitimacy of his age but as of yet no evidence has emerged that he is not 12-year-old.

Moukoko’s father has repeatedly confirmed that his son is yet to teach his teenage years and claimed that the starlet’s mother is just 28-years-old.

Whatever the case, eight goals in three games is not to be ignored.

Remember the name.
