Borussia Dortmund's Youssoufa Moukoko, aged 16 years and 28 days, has become the Bundesliga's youngest goalscorer in match against Union Berlin on Friday.

The excellent striker scored the host team a rocket goal from just inside the penalty area after Taiwo Awoniyi had netted the open goal for the host in 57th minutes.

In the end of the game, his goal was in vain as Marvin Friedrich quickly restored the hosts' lead to assure a 2-1 triumph.

This exceeds Bayer Leverkusen youngster Florian Wirtz's record, who was 17 years, one month and three days when he scored his first Bundesliga goal in June.

Moukoko

was already the youngest player to play in the Bundesliga against Hertha Berlin the day after turning 16 last month in a 5-2 victory.

His name was listed in

Dortmund

's starting XI for the first time in the midweek match against Werder Bremen, a 2-1 win in Edin Terzic's first match as head coach.

At the beginning of this month,

Moukoko

became the youngest player to play in the Champions League. 

He went into the pitch in a 2-1 triumph at Zenit after 58 minutes, with his 16 years and 18 days old overtaking the 16 years and 87 days of Celestine Babayaro during the 1994-95 Champions League group stages for Anderlecht.
