Utilita Kids & Girls Cup

Watch: Jamal Musiala goes from the Kids Cup to the World Cup

1 December 2022

Germany and Bayern Munich star Jamal Musiala is representing his country on the biggest stage of all at the World Cup 2022 but the 19-year-old lifted his first silverware at the Utilita Kids Cup!

Musiala won the competition twice in succession - initially representing Brentford in 2013 when the youngster triumphed in the Kids Cup, returning with AFC Wimbledon on behalf of Corpus Christi Primary School the following season ahead of the 2014 Play-Off Final.

He netted a first-half hat-trick for the Dons before adding a fourth in the second period as Wimbledon cruised to a 7-1 win over Fleetwood Town.

The attacker moved to England at the age of seven, spending time in the Southampton - where his mother was studying at university - and Chelsea Academies, moving back to Germany where he linked up with the Bundesliga giants.

Last month, Musiala made his World Cup debut when he was handed a start against Japan, becoming the first teenager to play for Germany in the tournament since 1958, and the fourth youngest German player in the national team's history.
