Borussia Dortmund, Clubs, German Bundesliga, Story, UEFA Champions League

Youssoufa Moukoko was promoted to Borussia Dortmund’s U19s in the summer.

Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Youssoufa Moukoko, 14, became the youngest player to score in the UEFA Youth League when he netted in the 4-1 defeat against Inter Milan on Tuesday

It is the latest landmark for the teenager, who scored six goals on his under-19 debut for Dortmund in August.

After a record 50 goals in 28 matches for Dortmund’s U17s last season, he was promoted to Borussia’s under-19 team in the summer.

Moukoko could make his Bundesliga debut in the 2021-22 season, once he has turned 17.

And Germany coach Joachim Low has even said he is monitoring the player’s progress.

“I’ve been speaking to [Dortmund U19 coach] Michael Skibbe for a while,” Low said. “Everyone involved is well advised to wait and let him develop in peace.”

Meanwhile, Dortmund’s senior team also suffered defeat to Inter in their Champions League clash, losing 2-0 at San Siro, thanks to goals from Lautaro Martinez and Antonio Candreva.

The result could have been even worse for Lucien Favre’s side as Martinez saw a penalty saved by Roman Burki.
