Watch: Jude Bellingham scores on competitive Dortmund debut
Jude Bellingham needed just 30 minutes of his competitive debut to get off the mark for Borussia Dortmund, becoming the youngest player to score a goal for the club since 1952.
One Englishman, Jadon Sancho, had put Dortmund ahead in their DFB-Pokal first-round tie at third-tier MSV Duisburg from the penalty spot in the 14th minute when Bellingham broke into the box to finish off a flowing move he had already played a part in.
At just 17 years and 77 days old, the former Birmingham midfielder is Dortmund’s youngest goalscorer in 68 years. The goal capped a fine first half, but he was withdrawn on a booking a minute into the second half with BVB 3-0 up and cruising.
Thorgan Hazard had scored the third with a sensational free-kick after Dominic Volkmer had been shown a red card for the hosts, and just five minutes into the second half it was 4-0 when another 17-year-old, Giovanni Reyna, saw his free-kick deflected in.
