Jude Bellingham played a starring role from midfield in Borussia Dortmund's first pre-season fixture of the summer ahead of the 2020/21 season, with Erling Haaland also scoring twice in a 6-0 victory over SC Rheindorf Altach.
Having signed a long-term contract with Dortmund at the end of July before joining the first-team training camp in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland, 17-year-old Bellingham started the club's opening pre-season match of the summer.
Bellingham, despite playing in a deeper midfield role, contributed to two of Dortmund's goals in his 45 minutes on the pitch. The first coming from his pressing and reading of the game as he intercepted a pass out from the Altach defence before setting up Haaland, who in turn found Reyna for a tidy finish.
Haaland tucked away a penalty before Bellingham then turned direct provider for the Norweigian striker's second of the first half, his backheeled flick at the near post teeing up Haaland to smash home. Lucien Favre changed his entire team at half-time with the score already at 3-0 and Dortmund added three more goals in the second period through Thorgan Hazard, Emre Can and Julian Brandt.
"I loved every minute of it," Bellingham told BVB.TV after his debut for the club. "It was great to familiarise myself with the boys and finally have some competition in black and yellow. I'm buzzing. We got some goals, had some fun. I really enjoyed it.
"I'm confident in my ability but the boys made it so easy for me. They were outstanding at times and we played some really good stuff even though it's our first game back. I'm really happy to be part of this team."
Bellingham will be looking to impress further in Dortmund's next friendly against Austria Vienna, to be played on Sunday 16 August.
