Bundesliga has been the home for some of the best talents of the game, for quite a long time now. Often considered to be the best league in the world, it certainly manifested young players since its inception. A host of young players have left their mark in the league. Timo Werner, Julian Draxler, and Christian Pulisic are some of the noteworthy names that come to mind whenever young goalscorers are mentioned. However, they are not the youngest ever to score in the German League. In this article, we will get to list the youngest players to score a goal in the Bundesliga.
Youssoufa Moukoko (16 years 28 days):
Moukoko came in through the ranks of the academy of Borussia Dortmund. He shattered all the records there in the academy. And he became the youngest ever player to step on the pitch in the Bundesliga. Just 28 days past his 16th birthday and he netted the only goal for Dortmund in a lost match against Union Berlin. However, that goal earned him the record of scoring as the youngest ever player in the German league.
Florian Writz (17 years 34 days):
Writz became the youngest player for Bayer Leverkusen as he toppled Kai Havertz when he made his debut in the 2020/21 season. Against Bayern Munich, he came onto the pitch from the bench and scored a memorable curling goal. This goal earned him the youngest goalscorer title, but Moukoko broke the record with his goal. The goal is even more memorable because it came against the champions.
Nuri Sahin (17 years 2 month 21 days):
The Turkey international made his debut for Borussia Dortmund back in 2005 and became the youngest player ever to play in the league. However, that record is not intact anymore. In the same year, he scored his first goal for the club against Werder Bremen. And the goal was a crucial one. He went to elite clubs like Liverpool and Real Madrid after winning the league with Dortmund in 2011.
