Charles Kwablan Herrmann, the son of former Ghana international Charles Kwabla (CK) Akonnor, played a role in Germany's triumph at the 2023 U17 FIFA World Cup.

The teenager, who is currently part of Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund's youth team, was part of the German squad that secured victory over France in a thrilling final on Saturday, December 2, 2023.

Although Herrmann remained an unused substitute during the intense final, his contribution throughout the tournament was instrumental in Germany's success.

The match ended in a 2-2 draw after regulation time, with Germany ultimately prevailing 4-3 on penalties.

Germany initially surged ahead with goals from Paris Brunner and Noah Darvich, but France mounted a spirited comeback after Winners Osawe received a red card.

Despite playing with 10 men for almost half an hour, Germany held their ground, and the victory was sealed in the penalty shootout.

Herrmann's remarkable year continued with this U17 World Cup triumph, adding to his earlier success in winning the U17 European Championship.

The 17-year-old's promising talent has earned him a place in Borussia Dortmund's youth setup, showcasing his potential for a bright future in football.
