📷 Jadon Sancho: Match Performance
A ⏱️ 18' Dortmund waste no time in getting their noses ahead. Sancho goes on a piercing run through the centre before slipping a pass to Haaland, who fires home from a tight angle.
⚽ ⏱️ 45' Sancho eyes up the free kick then sends a curling right-footed shot into the top corner of the net from the arc of the ‘D’. He is the first Englishman to score a direct free-kick in the competition for a foreign club since David Beckham in October 2005.
The match is taken away from the Belgians by Haaland, who benefits from a kind bounce of the ball after an hour before rifling home.

Sancho’s task is to build on this excellent outing. On Saturday, he will have the chance to put his side temporarily top of the Bundesliga against Koln, then next Tuesday they can book their place in the knockout stages by overcoming Lazio at home.
