A phenomenon is growing in Germany. An African can be talked about soon and shake statistics. The prowess of Cameroonian Youssoufa Moukoko who plays with the Juniors Borussia Dortmund leave no one indifferent in Germany.
The young prodigy who had already started to attract attention a few weeks ago with his 20 goals in 9 games has moved to a higher stage. He now reaches the 30 goal mark. A rare fact in Germany in the junior category to be reported!
A true “Messi” in the making and he is African. The Borussia Dortmund junior striker impresses the coach of the German U-16 team who did not hesitate to call him last September.
And during his first steps in the German selection, the 13-year-old has marked the spirits. A nice double against Austria and here it is now confirmed among the executives of this team. A passage in selection that seems to have created a click for the future. Since, in club, the player continues to please. Moukoko already has 30 goals and 4 assists in 16 games played.
The behavior of the player on the ground does not hide the criticism of his detractors. These are at the origin of a polemic on his age. they feel that he is older than the age indicated on his birth certificate. But on this subject, the youth coordinator of the DFB, the German Football Association, is formal: “There is on the DFB, at various levels, intensive consultations on this subject with Borussia Dortmund. Borussia Dortmund officials have demanded a careful examination of the facts about the authenticity of the documents. Thus, there would be no doubt as to the accuracy of the player’s age. “
A statement added to that maintained by the father of the player: “the boy can not be older. His mother is only 27 years old. His age is right. Immediately after his birth, I recorded it at the German consulate in Yaoundé. We have a German birth certificate.
The other concern is especially whether the player once great and at a higher level will wear the colors of Germany or his country of origin, Cameroon. Until then, he will have time to grow, to mature his talent before making a decision.
