Germany striker Youssouf Mukoko is impressed with his inclusion in the squad for the World Cup in Qatar.

The 17-year-old striker of Borussia Dortmund replaced the injured Marco Reus in the German squad. Having played in a friendly match against Oman (1:0), he became the youngest debutant of the national team since 1954.

“To get to the World Cup at 17 is something special. I was very well received, we are looking forward to the start of the tournament,” Get German Football News quotes him.

Mukoko turned 18 today.
