Who is England’s Jamal Musiala?

Bayern Munich midfielder Jamal Musiala started his first England Under-21’s game last night at just 17-years old.

The youngster played in a midfield five which ran the show as the Young Lions went on to win 5-0 against Albania.

His well-timed one-two with teammate Oliver Skipp on the edge of the box allowed Musiala a one-one chance. His composure to dink the ball over the onrushing keeper shows intelligence beyond his years.

Importantly, it was some much needed international experience for Musiala. Without a doubt, that performance will increase his chances of being included in Aidy Boothroyd’s squad next summer.

The England manager added after game: “He gives me a nice problem going into March,” said Boothroyd. “I thought Jamal was excellent. You can see that physically he’s not finished. He’s going to be a brute of a man.”

However, despite his performance, his name is not known amongst England and Premier League fans.

So who is Jamal Musiala?

He was born in Germany to a Nigerian father and a German mother, however, he moved to England at a young age. That led Musiala to join Premier League side Chelsea’s academy where he played with current Chelsea player Callum Hudson-Odoi.

During that time, Musiala represented both England and Germany at youth levels. If he does keep impressing manager and fans, there could be a battle between the two nations for the youngster.

After time in England, he moved back to Germany where he signed for Bayern Munich II where he made 10 appearances. But his big moment came in June of this year where he became the youngest player to ever play for Bayern Munich.

This season has seen him involved more around the senior team, having made five appearances for the German Champions scoring twice.

After making an impression on the International stage, the career of Jamal Musiala could be one to keep an eye on.
