18-year-old Jadon Sancho becomes the first Englishman to score for Borussia Dortmund

The former Man City youngster kissed the badge after scoring his first professional goal

This may well be good pub quiz ammo in a few years’ time.

Jadon Sancho has just stroked home his first professional goal to become the first ever Englishman to score for Borussia Dortmund.

The 18-year-old opened the scoring for BVB against Bayer Leverkusen at the Westfalenstadion in the Bundesliga.

Christian Pulisic did brilliantly to skip away from his man and carry the ball in-field from the right wing before sliding a pass to Sancho.

The former Man City wonderkid took a touch before showing great composure to open up his body and place his finish into the far bottom corner.

Pulisic dribbled the ball into the final third…

Sancho signed for Dortmund from Man City in the summer of 2017 for a fee in the region of £8million.

A star for England’s youth stars, many believe he has the potential to become a world-class player.

Ousmane Dembele’s departure to Barcelona left the No7 shirt open for Sancho and the teenager made eight appearances for the first team before picking up an ankle injury that ruled him out for several weeks.

His first professional goal would have come as both a joy and a relief after being forced to watch so many games from the treatment table.

Not content with just a goal, Sancho went on to provide two assists as Dortmund won 4-0…
