The rising star of football

Jamal Musiala was born in Germany, but when he was little, his family relocated to the UK, and he began his football education in London.

Musiala enrolled in Whitgift, an independent school in south London, which has a reputation for producing players who go on to become exceptional professionals, such as Callum Hudson-Odoi and former Nigerian international Victor Moses. Musiala soon began playing for Chelsea’s academy.

“Jamal really jumped out; his goal-scoring was amazing,” stated Whitgift’s director of football, Andrew Martin.

In 2019, Musiala rejoined Bayern Munich and returned to Germany.

Even though he had previously played for England’s minor teams, he became the club’s youngest-ever Champions League goalscorer at the age of 17, and he went on to solidify his spot in Germany’s national squad.

Jamal Musiala, who is currently regarded as one of the world’s most exciting attacking midfielders, has excelled at Euro 2024, a competition in which Germany is beginning to seem extremely dangerous.

After witnessing Musiala’s prowess in a 5-2 loss to Bayern Munich, Darmstadt coach Torsten Lieberknecht couldn’t help but express his admiration, stating, “He’s not just a player, he’s a leader. He’s going to lead Germany to glory one day.” This high praise speaks volumes about Musiala’s potential impact on the German national team.

When Germany plays Switzerland in its final Group A match on Sunday, it will look to extend its winning streak, but all eyes will now be on the round of 16.
