Jadon Sancho has caused quite a splash in Europe since joining Borussia Dortmund in 2017.

The 18-year-old moved to Germany from Manchester City and has quickly established himself as one of the most promising young players on the continent. 

After becoming the first Englishman to represent Dortmund in the Bundesliga, he's since made 31 appearances in the league and has become a regular starter.

Last October, he scooped the Bundesliga Player of the Month award after registering three goals and an assist in just three games. 

Sancho's progress is well documented and he's made the case for other young English players to take a chance and leave the Premier League for more regular football elsewhere.

That decision continues to pay off because on Saturday, he produced what some are calling his best performance yet in a Dortmund shirt. 


The young forward featured from the start against Hoffenheim at Signal Iduna Park and it took him just 32 minutes to make his mark. 

Sancho exchanged passes with a teammate on the edge of the box, before beating two players and drilling a finish across goal and into the net. 


He also played a big part in Raphael Guerreiro's goal that put Dortmund 3-0 up, as his cheeky backheel pass nutmegged a Hoffenheim defender before Mario Gotze cut back for the assist.

On top of his silk link-up play, Sancho also showcased his individual talents by taking on opposition players and showing absolutely no fear all afternoon. 

Check out his highlights video below that includes his goal and shows just how much fun he's having in Germany.


Despite going 3-0 up, Dortmund actually dropped points on Saturday as a late fightback from Hoffenheim meant they had to settle for a draw. 

Still, the point took them eight clear of second-placed Bayern Munich at the top of the Bundesliga and Sancho is still on course to be crowned a league champion with his club come May.
