Jamal Musiala (born 26 February 2003) is a German professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Bundesliga club Bayern Munich.

Born in Germany to a British-Nigerian father and German mother and raised mainly in England, Musiala represented both Germany and England at youth level, and eventually pledged his allegiance to the Germany national football team for future games in February 2021.[4][5]

Early life

Musiala was born in Stuttgart, Germany and lived in Fulda until the age of seven, before moving to England with his family, where he went on to spend most of his childhood.[6][7] He went to primary school at the Corpus Christi School in New Malden.[8] For secondary school he went to the Whitgift School in Croydon.[9] He was in the Chelsea academy for most of his childhood years.[6]

Club career

In July 2019, aged 16, Musiala left Chelsea to join Bundesliga club Bayern Munich.[10] On 3 June 2020, Musiala made his professional debut, coming on as a substitute for Bayern Munich II in their 3–2 win over Preußen Münster in the 3. Liga.[11] On 20 June 2020, he made his Bundesliga debut against Freiburg, and he became the youngest player to play a match for Bayern in the Bundesliga, aged 17 years and 115 days.[12][13] On 18 September 2020, Musiala scored his first Bundesliga goal in an 8–0 win over Schalke, to become Bayern's youngest goalscorer, aged 17 years 205 days, breaking the previous record of Roque Santa Cruz, aged 18 years 12 days.[6][14]

On 3 November, Musiala made his Champions League debut as a substitute to Thomas Müller in a 6–2 away win over Red Bull Salzburg.[15] On 1 December, he started his first Champions League match in a 1–1 away draw against Atlético Madrid.[16] On 23 February 2021, Musiala scored his first Champions League goal in a 4–1 away win over Lazio in the first leg of the round of 16 tie, becoming the competition's youngest goalscorer of both English and German nationalities.[17][18]

International career

Musiala was born in Germany to a British-Nigerian father and German mother.[19] He moved to England at a young age with his mother and then moved back to Germany at age 16 to join Bayern Munich.[20] Musiala, who is also eligible to play for Nigeria via his father, has represented both England and Germany at youth international level.[10][21]

In November 2020, Musiala was called up to the England under-21 squad for the first time for their 2021 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification matches.[22] He made his U21 debut as a substitute during a 3–1 victory over Andorra under-21s at Molineux Stadium on 13 November 2020.[23] He scored his first under-21 goal during a 5–0 win over Albania at Molineux Stadium on 17 November 2020.[24] After choosing to represent England's under-21s, the German football association indicated that they had stopped pursuing Musiala, with youth team coach Meikel Schonweitz stating: "He has clearly signalled to us that he currently sees his future with the English national teams. We accept his decision and wish him all the best for his sporting career."[25] Musiala had previously indicated that he felt more comfortable playing for England at youth level than for Germany, as he grew up as a footballer at Chelsea with other English players, whereas for Germany he did not know any of the other players.[26]

On 24 February 2021, Musiala announced he had decided to represent his birth nation, Germany, for full international matches.[4][5]
