Borussia Dortmund unleashed all their power against Union Berlin on Saturday, earning a 5-0 win over the capital team. English international Jadon Sancho scored the first goal of the game after just 13 minutes.
A double from in-form striker Erling Haaland and goals from Marco Reus and Axel Witsel finished the job as the Bundesliga giants sit third in the standings.

We saw a lot of actions in this game, but there was also a touching moment involving Sancho. The England international paid tribute to former NBA superstar Kobe Bryant who tragically lost his life in a helicopter crash last week.
Bryant was one of the most beloved and respected sports figures, and his death affected several athletes who have paid a public tribute to him over the past few days. Jadon wasn’t the exception to this and decided to dedicate his goal to Kobe.
This loss will be incredibly hard to overcome, and more and more homages are certainly on their way.
