Despite strong interest from Manchester United, Dortmund won the race to sign wonderkid Bellingham from Birmingham for £25m to make him the most expensive 17-year-old in history.
After already making history, he is breaking more records. Thirty minutes into the DFB-Pokal match against Duisburg, he latched on to a neat flick from Thorgan Hazard to display composure inside the box to squeeze a strike beyond the keeper into the top right corner to make it 2-0.

For his overall performance, he earned a 7.7 FC Rating.
With that goal, he became the youngest scorer in the 100-year history of Dortmund and broke a record that had been standing for 68 years.
Afterwards, he wrote on Twitter: "A true honour, so grateful for the opportunity to play for this club!"
