If Raheem Sterling thought that he has got his season off to a flyer by scoring a hat-trick against West Ham, then he’s mistaken.
Sterling may have left the London Stadium with the match ball but that’s nothing compared to 14-year-old Youssoufa Moukoko.
You may have heard of the name before.
Moukoko is making waves at Borussia Dortmund at such a young age after scoring 83 goals in 50 appearances for the Under-17s at just 13-years-old.
This season was supposed to be a bit tougher for the striker, though.

At 14, he teamed up with Dortmund Under-19s.
However, on his first match at that age group, he scored a ridiculous six goals.
He may only be 14, but Moukoko has been tipped to become a future star for years.
When he was just 12-years-old, he scored twice against Schalke's Under-17 side.
Of course, there will be some fans that will doubt his real age due to the crazy numbers he’s producing.
But the German Football Association have investigated and, after extensive meetings with Dortmund, confirmed that Moukoko’s age is correct.
And he’s already bagged him a €10m Nike contact. He secured a €1 million fee just for signing the deal alone.
But there’s no chance of seeing him in the Bundesliga anytime soon.
In the German league, players must be at least 16-years-old before they can feature, as long as they turn 17 before January 1 of the season in question. Even then, Germany law prevents players of that age from working past 8pm, unless they obtain special permission from government officials.
Sorry youth sides in Germany, you’ll have to face Moukoko for a few more seasons yet…News Now - Sport News
