Florian Wirtz has written his name in history’s books. Firstly, he became the Bundesliga’s youngest goalscorer in history. Secondly, he scored a stunning goal. Thirdly, he is the youngest German player to score in all Europe’s top 5 leagues.

The promising attacker Florian Wirtz came on as a second-half sub with his side already losing. However, Wirtz curled a screamer past Manuel Neuer to spectacularly secure his place in history’s books as the youngest goalscorer in the Bundesliga.

The record for the Bundesliga’s youngest goalscorer was previously held by Nuri Sahin. However, at the time he was 17 years and 82 days when he scored for Dortmund against Nurnberg.

The youngster was on he pitch for only just his fourth appearance in the Bundesliga. However, he made his debut in the 4-1 win at Werder Bremen earlier in May.

Florian effortlessly rifled home after Robert Lewandowski’s goal in the match made it his 44th of the season in all competitions.

The Bayer Leverkusen prodigy joins the history books as a youngest goalscorer in spectacular style today. He joins the youngest goalscorers list which includes the likes of:

  1. James Vaughan who is the English Premier league’s youngest goalscorer
  2. Fabrice Olinga who is La Liga’s youngest goalscorer
  3. Amedeo Amadei who is Serie A’s youngest goalscorer
