Germany

Moving to Germany, and wonderkid Gio Reyna was among the main protagonists in Borussia Dortmund’s dramatic 3-2 win over Hoffenheim. Reyna put his team in front in the 49th minute before he was subbed out of the game in the 62nd minute. Norwegian sensation Erling Haaland eventually netted a winner for Dortmund in injury time.

England & Scotland

We start our first weekly roundup in the UK where striker Josh Sargent made his first appearance for his new club Norwich City when he was introduced off the substitute’s bench in the 77th minute of the Canaries’ dismal 5-0 defeat to Premier League champions Manchester City.

One tier below the Premier League in the championship, Antonee Robinson and Tim Ream helped Fulham to a 2-0 win over Hull City in London. Unfortunately for Ream, the defender had to be withdrawn with an injury in the 21st minute, though Robinson capped a fine display at left-back with an assist for Fabio Carvalho.
