14-Year Old Youssoufa Moukoko Scored An Eight Minute Hat-Trick For Borussia Dortmund Under 19's
Not content with smashing it at Under 15's and Under 17's for Borussia Dortmund, 14-year old wonderkid Youssoufa Moukoko is tearing it up at Under 19's level too.
Signed from St Pauli in 2016, Moukoko netted 33 goals in 21 matches in a single season for the Under 15's BVB side and then made the step up to the Bundesliga outfit's Under 17 team, where he continued to go goal-crazy by notching a record-setting 50 goals in 28 games.
He then marked his graduation to the Under 19's by bagging six on his debut just over a fortnight ago and made it nine goals in four matches this weekend when he scored an incredible eight-minute hat-trick in a 6-2 win over Arminia.
Moukoko opened the scoring in the 25th minute and added to his tally with a further two goals in quick succession.

Ich freue mich schon auf ihn wenn er endlich bei den Profis mitspielen darf #Moukoko #beastmode #BVB #Goat pic.twitter.com/AcetPONYAi- :yellow_heart: (@Lafonate) August 25, 2019
In the past, the age of Moukoko has come into question, with a Dortmund coach casting doubt on whether he is older than his birth certificate.
BVB youth coordinator Lars Ricken defended the youngster in 2017, however, and his father, Joseph, refuted the claims.
"The boy can't be older because his mum, Marie, is only 28."
Dortmund are believed to have tied him down until 2022, while German outlet Ruhr Nachrichten claim the starlet has already secured himself a $1 million Nike deal and received a seven-figure upfront.
He will be entitled to incentives if he plays in the Bundesliga but the player himself is aiming much higher than that - specifically targeting a Ballon d'Or win.
"If I'm honest, my goal is to become a professional in Dortmund, to get the Champions League with Borussia and to win the Ballon d'Or (World Player Award)," he said to Sport Bild.
