A YouTube sensation made his professional debut on Wednesday.

They regularly rack up million views across their family vlog content, while Jindaoui also has two million followers on Instagram.

He is also a talented footballer but it's only now that Jindaoui has received his big break.

On Wednesday night, he finally played in a professional game at the ripe old age of 27 - coming off the bench for Hertha Berlin in a DFB Pokal clash against Hamburg.

The game was played at Euro 2024 final venue Olympiastadion, in front of 60,000 fans, and Hertha scored a last-minute equaliser in extra time to force penalties.

Former Everton defender Jonjoe Kenny struck at the death and then Jindaoui, a Hertha fan, wore the No.17 shirt and scored his penalty in the shoot-out as the hosts won.

The winger signed with the club's reserve team and typically plays in the Regionalliga Northeast, which is the fourth tier of football in Germany.

But he finally got his chance and played 40 minutes from the first-team in a night he will never forget.

Taking to Instagram after his bow, Jindaoui wrote: "Dreams do come true" and accrued over 200,000 likes on his post.

Another video showed him overcome with emotion and passion at what he had just achieved.

As a youngster, Jindaoui turned out for the likes of Nord Wedding, Fuchse Berlin, Tennis Borussia Berlin, Energie Cottbus and Chemnitz.

He signed professionally Babelsberg and later represented the reserve sides of Greuther Furth and Fortuna Dusseldorf.

It was reported that an epileptic seizure and subsequent treatment resulted in a release earlier in his career.

Jindaoui has 2.6 million followers on TikTok but he feels as though he's a footballer before he's an influencer.

"At the end of the day it was football," he said, as per ran.de.

"I play football all my life. Even if some people like to say that I'm an influencer. But I'm a footballer - and I share a little bit of my life. "But if you google me, It says footballer. And that's how I feel too."
