U21 European Championship qualification: Mega Moukoko sets a triple record – U21 shoots San Marino

What a debut for Germany’s mega-talent Youssoufa Moukoko (16)!

Germany’s U21s beat San Marino 6-0 in qualifying for the U-21 European Championship in Georgia in 2023. The first victory after the European Championship title in the final against Portugal (1-0) in June.

Mega-Moukoko even sets a new triple record!

Even before the game it was clear: With his debut, Moukoko (16 years, 286 days) is replacing Leverkusen’s Florian Wirtz (17 years, 159 days) as the youngest ever U21 player – first record.

In the 39th, Dortmund’s super talent then made it 3-0 for the German boys – second record.

Moukoko gets the ball perfectly after a one-two with Mainz ‘Jonatan Burkhardt (21) – and easily slides in for his record debut.

Just two minutes later, he scores 3-0, tying up a double at his premiere. Third record!

Moukoko is substituted in the 73rd minute – after a three-time record. A tailor-made debut for the super talent.
