Borussia Dortmund superkid Youssoufa Moukoko thrilled with debut: What a night!

Borussia Dortmund superkid Youssoufa Moukoko was thrilled to make his much-anticipated debut yesterday.

At 16 years and one day, the striker became the youngest ever Bundesliga debutant as he replaced Erling Haaland in the second-half of BVB's 5-2 rout of Hertha Berlin.

Moukoko took to social media to state: "What a night! Very happy to have made my debut. But I'm even happier about the three points.

"Nothing can describe this feeling."

Haaland later said of his young teammate: "He's greatest talent in the world."
