Youssoufa Moukoko: The 13-year-old Borussia Dortmund striker taking the U-17s by storm

If you've been impressed by Borussia Dortmund academy graduates like Christian Pulisic and Mario Götze, prepare to be stunned by another outrageously gifted youngster in the BVB stable: Youssoufa Moukoko.

At the age of 12 (do not rub your eyes, yes we did say 12) last October, the striker was the hero of the hour against Schalke, netting a stunning Revierderby brace as the Under-17s recovered a three-goal deficit to draw 4-4, and put his name on the back pages.

The Cameroon-born prospect, now 13, finished the season with 40 goals as Dortmund won the B-Junioren Bundesliga West, with decisive goals from Moukoko in the semi-final against Bayer Leverkusen and final against Bayern Munich.

Watch: Moukoko's wondergoal, scored against Leverkusen!

Moukoko, who was born in Cameroon on 24 November 2004, joined Dortmund from Bundesliga 2 side St. Pauli last year and immediately hit the ground running.

In 2016/17, he was top scorer in the club's all-conquering U-15 side, netting 33 times in 21 games to help them win the Regionalliga West title with five matches to spare. His performances did not go unnoticed by the German FA, who called him up for the U16's 3-1 win over Austria last September.
