13 things we loved this weekend: Sancho, McKennie, Rashford & more

Quick Reads

Jadon Sancho proved the hero of the weekend in the Bundesliga as he paid tribute to George Floyd while celebrating one of his three goals in Borussia Dortmund’s 6-1 thrashing of Paderborn.

Elsewhere, rivals Bayern Munich continued their sublime record under new boss Hansi Flick and Marcus Rashford got us excited for the Premier League’s return.

We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.

Weston McKennie

Using his platform for good.

Jadon Sancho

Does anyone else just feel quite proud of him?

Leonardo Bittencourt

What a bloody goal that is.

Javairo Dilrosun

That touch deserves celebrating in itself.

Alassane Plea

A ridiculously laid-back finish.

Robert Lewandowski

His season gets sillier and sillier.

Hansi Flick

Speaking of ridiculously good records.

Leon Goretzka

We’ve added a similar amount of body mass during lockdown, sadly we were told we looked “a bit chubby Pete Doherty”.

Marcus Rashford

We’re very excited to see him back fully fit and firing.

Bruno Goda

When you try your best to wait to pick a pass…

Reda Rabai

Oh dear, keeper.
