The 18-year-old was involved in all three of Dortmund’s goals on Saturday
 

Jadon Sancho produced one of his best performances to date in a Borussia Dortmund shirt on Saturday.

Dortmund threw away a three-goal lead after Hoffenheim netted a trio of goals in the final 15 minutes to shock the Bundesliga leaders.

And despite the poor result, Sancho’s display did not go unnoticed.

The England international opened the scoring before assisting Mario Gotze for the second in the first-half – and his nutmeg on a Hoffenheim defender led to Raphael Guerreiro adding a third in the 66th minute.

He was denied a brace by the post in the 75th minute, though, which sparked Hoffenheim into life.

The visitors immediately went up the other end and pulled one back through Ishak Belfodil.

Pavel Kaderabek headed home with seven minutes to go and the remarkable comeback was complete when Belfodil netted an equalising goal two minutes from time.

Sancho also made Bundesliga history by becoming the youngest player, at 18 years of age, to score eight goals in the German top-flight.

He is keeping Chelsea’s £57million signing Christian Pulisic out of the team, and based on Saturday’s performance, the former Manchester City winger looks undroppable.
