Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Jadon Sancho has hit the ground running this season, and the English starlet's recent performance saw him break a 52-year-old record.
On Friday, title contenders Dortmund recorded their second consecutive win of the 2019/20 Bundesliga campaign when they secured a 3-1 victory over FC Koln.
For the second time in as many matches, 19-year-old winger Jadon Sancho was the club's star man, scoring once and assisting another strike as BVB came from behind to claim all three points.
The England international made history upon scoring his side's opening goal of the encounter, becoming the league's youngest player ever to score 15 goals.
Sancho reached the milestone at the age of 19 years, four months and 30 days, breaking the record set by Borussia Monchengladbach's Horst Koppel in 1967 by 34 days.
The former Manchester City prodigy revealed that he was pleased to have broken the record, but gave credit to his team for his recent performances.
"It's not me, it's the team," Sancho told Bundesliga.com.
"They help me throughout training and I'm just thankful for my teammates and the coaches that are playing me week in, week out, and especially all of the players on the pitch that are more experienced and that's giving me that extra advice, and I'm just really pleased."
Sancho has also provided the assist for 16 strikes since the beginning of last season, the most by any player in Europe's top five leagues in the same period.
Is Sancho the best young player in the world at the moment? Let us have your thoughts by commenting below.
