Sancho Scores As Borussia Dortmund Thrash Atletico Madrid 4 – 0

Spread the love

England international Jadon Sancho scored his first Champions League goal as Borussia Dortmund recorded an impressive win over Atletico Madrid.

The teenager scored Dortmund’s third with a simple tap-in after goals from Axel Witsel and Raphael Guerreiro.

Guerreiro then made it 4-0 after capitalising on a poor back pass from Felipe Luis to finish past Jan Oblak.

The result was manager Diego Simeone’s biggest defeat in his seven years in charge of Atletico.

Witsel opened the scoring with a deflected shot in the first half but it was 73 minutes before Guerreiro made it two, finishing off a brilliant team move.

Former Manchester City winger Sancho came off the bench just after Dortmund’s second and got his name on the score sheet four minutes later when Mario Gotze played Achraf Hakimi through and he squared the ball for an easy finish.

The 18-year-old, who made his England debut this month as a substitute in a 0-0 draw against Croatia, became the second-youngest English player to score in the Champions League, after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for Arsenal against Olympiakos in 2011.

He is also the first English player to score for a non-British club in the Champions League since David Beckham for Real Madrid against Rosenborg in November 2005.

Atletico Madrid hit the post twice, either side of half-time, through Saul Niguez and Angel Correa but the German side were ultimately too much for them.

The result means Dortmund top Group A with nine points. Atletico remain in second, having won their first two games.

Paul Pogba’s brother, Mathias, has claimed Manchester United “have only one great player” in their squad.

Pogba publicly stated his intention to leave Old Trafford for a new challenge, but failed to secure a move away, despite interest from Real Madrid and Juventus.

But he has remained at the Theatre of Dreams and brother Mathias says he is focused on the job in hand, because United have only one ‘great player’ in David De Gea.

“Paul knows that he cannot leave Manchester United so he’s going to focus on this season.

“It’s not easy right now, because he has a lot of responsibility in the team. A lot of big players have left.

“The only great player is De Gea, the goalkeeper, which means he’s going to have to put a lot of effort in every game,” Mathias told El Chiringuito.

Pogba has started each of United’s four Premier League games so far this season, but is yet to find the net.

“I’m really sorry I can’t be with you, but I look back and see you as a young lad at 17 years of age who came to Manchester United, how you have progressed as a human being and a fantastic sportsman.

“I want to say to you, and your mother, and all your family, and all of your kids; well done.

“You have been an absolute pleasure for me to have known, to have worked with, and to have seen you progress into the footballer you were.

“So, good luck, have a great night, and well done.”

Ferguson signed Ronaldo from Sporting Lisbon in 2003.
