Jadon Sancho stars as Borussia Dortmund make it two wins out of two

Jadon Sancho scores for Dortmund
Sancho fires in Dortmund's equaliser to help them to a second straight win in this season's Bundesliga

Jadon Sancho scored one and assisted another goal as Borussia Dortmund came from behind to beat newly-promoted Cologne to make it two wins out of two at the start of the Bundesliga season.

Cologne sprung a surprise when Dominick Drexler headed them in front.

But England winger Sancho levelled the scores with 20 minutes left.

Substitute Achraf Hakimi headed last year's runners-up into the lead before Sancho's pass released Paco Alcacer to seal the victory in injury time.

Dortmund top the table with six points, with all of their chief rivals playing at the weekend.

Sancho, 19, has scored in both of Dortmund's Bundesliga games this season and has reached 15 goals for the club joining in 2017, making him the youngest player to reach that mark in the German league.
