Jadon Sancho forgets passport, delays Dortmund's flight to London

Jadon Sancho forgets passport, delays Dortmund's flight to London

The hosts found themselves 3-0 up after 66 minutes, but just like Sheffield United the night before at Aston Villa, they were left stunned when Hoffenheim scored three goals in 12 minutes to draw them level.

Since arriving on the scene at Dortmund, Sancho has established himself as one of the world's hottest prospects, and a goal and two assists against Hoffenheim at the weekend have done little to harm his burgeoning reputation.

But the 18-year-old's joy was cut short when forward Lewandowski struck two minutes later to Bayern ahead once more.

Since their 5-1 rout of Hannover in January, Dortmund are now winless in three straight matches, including a 1-1 away draw against Eintracht Frankfurt in league play and a 3-3 (4-2) loss on penalties to Werder Bremen in the round of 16 of the German Cup, reports Efe news. In addition, he also scored against Bayer Leverkusen last season.

Borussia Dortmund let a three-goal lead slip inside 15 second-half minutes as Hoffenheim claimed a 3-3 draw that could put a dent in the hosts' Bundesliga title charge.

The England global then set up Mario Götze for Dortmund's second goal just before half-time and combined with Götze to set up Raphaël Guerreiro for an easy tap-in in the 66th minute.


Sancho nearly got a second goal in the 75th but his low shot hit the post and bounced clear before the hosts stepped off the gas, allowing Ishak Belfodil to cut the deficit in the 75th minute.

But Ishak Belfodil pulled one back before Pavel Kaderabek and Belfodil headers rescued a dramatic point.

The visitors' memorable comeback was complete when Belfodil headed in a free kick in the 87th minute.

"When you see these youth academies - for example Man City - you can't compare it with the German standard, it's much higher".

"The club had shown with a player like Christian Pulisic that they were going in the right way, playing youngsters and giving them a chance", Sancho said. "That should never have happened".
