Teenage forward Jadon Sancho made history for Borussia Dortmund by becoming the first English player to wear the colours of the The Black and Yellows against Eintracht Frankfurt.
The 17-year-old came on as a late substitute in last Saturday’s absorbing 2-2 Bundesliga draw with Frankfurt, after replacing the injured Maximilian Philipp in the 83rd minute. He nearly won the contest late in the game but his strike on target was well saved by goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky.
The young starlet, who began his career at Watford before signing for Manchester City, joined Dortmund from the Citizens in August this year after he reportedly was not guaranteed enough playing time in the first team under Pep Guardiola.
The London-born attacker has seen playing time for Borussia Dortmund II in the reserves, however, his appearance against the Eagles marked his official senior debut for coach Peter Bosz’s side.
Sancho had scored three goals for England U-17s at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in India before being recalled by Dortmund to travel to Cyprus for the team’s midweek UEFA Champions League draw with APOEL.
As such, it appears it could be just a matter of time before he makes his full debut for the club.
