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.
The other goals were scored by Jonatan Burkhardt (19th, 43rd) and Tom Krauss (4th, Nuremberg) and Jamie Leweling (67th, Fürth). For the team of coach Stefan Kuntz (58) it is next in group B of the European Championship qualifiers against Latvia (Tuesday, 6.15 p.m.).
Let’s see if Moukoko then sets more records!
