Qatar 2022 W/Cup: 17-Year-Old Cameroon-Born Striker Makes Germany’s 26-Man Squad

Germany handed a surprise call-up to Borussia Dortmund’s 17-year-old Cameroon-born forward Youssoufa Moukoko for their 26-man World Cup squad.

Germany head coach Hansi Flick announced his 26-man squad for this year’s World Cup in Qatar, with Moukoko, who has scored six times in the Bundesliga this season, selected following the absence of the injured Timo Werner.

Werder Bremen forward Niclas Fullkrug also earned a spot after a stellar season with 10 goals so far.

Saints centre-back Bella-Kotchap is one of four Premier League players included in the squad along with West Ham defender Thilo Kehrer, Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan and Chelsea forward Kai Havertz.

There was also a sensational return for 30-year-old midfielder Mario Gotze, who is back in the national team after five years out.

Gotze, who scored the winning goal for Germany in the 2014 World Cup final, is back to his best after returning to the Bundesliga with Eintracht Frankfurt this season.

The four-time World Cup winners are in Group E alongside Spain, Costa Rica and Japan.

  • Guess what?England just released its 26 man team list to Qatar World Cup…. Can you imagine Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham missing out on that list?… These guys would have made Nigeria’s Super Eagles so strong and competitive if they had agreed to play for Nigeria. What a waste? This should be eye opener for players like them who are still in the fringe of making their countries of birth teams but will never make those teams because when the chips are down, those handlers will go for their own if they have alternatives or options that can compare very well with them. The situation hurts but it is what it is….

      England is different ‘than’ USA or Germany or France (remember the WC Africa won for France?), but our boys would never understand. They rely on false hope and British pension. Why would a millionaire be so fixated on pension? Is money the most important thing in life?

    Yes, Germany will give you the opportunity on highest level.
    But England will not.
    Sorry to some Nigerian root England player’s
