Youssoufa Moukoko was on target again for the Germany U-21s on Friday, while Sebastien Haller helped the Ivory Coast cruise to a comfortable win.
Two Borussia Dortmund players were in action for their national teams on Friday evening. And it was goals galore, as both Youssoufa Moukoko and Sebastien Haller found the back of the net. Moukoko started for the Germany U-21s as they went up against Estonia in the UEFA European U-21 Championship qualifiers.
Antonio Di Salvo’s side delivered a strong performance and claimed a 4-1 win to maintain their 100% record in the qualifiers.
TSG Hoffenheim striker Maximilian Beier opened the scoring for the Germany U-21s, before Youssoufa Moukoko made it 2-0 by scoring his sixth goal of the qualifying campaign. The 18 year old did really well to win the ball back on the edge of the box, before firing his shot past the Estonia goalkeeper.
Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Rocco Reitz then came off the bench and scored a brace on his Germany U-21s debut. Moukoko was also involved in the build-up to the Germany U-21s’ fourth goal of the evening.
The Ivory Coast also enjoyed a goal-glut on Friday as they began their 2026 FIFA World Cup campaign with an impressive 9-0 win over Seychelles.
Sebastien Haller played from the start and opened the scoring from the penalty spot. The Borussia Dortmund striker was then subbed off at half-time, with the Ivory Coast already four goals ahead. The 29 year old now has three goals and one assist in his last four appearances for his national team.
