Sancho played the full 90 minutes as Bundesliga leaders Dortmund twice came from behind to win a gripping encounter 3-2 at Signal Iduna Park, and move seven points clear of Germany's record champions in the process.
"I'm so happy for the team," said 18-year-old England international Sancho, after Dortmund extended their unbeaten start to the 2018/19 Bundesliga season to 11 matches. "This result came from everyone working hard together. If we keep on doing this throughout the season, we could win big things."

Few would disagree. Dortmund have been unstoppable under Lucien Favre, racking up eight wins, three draws and plundering a Bundesliga-high 33 goals along the way.
Best of all, the Black-Yellows simply do not know when to give in. The Bayern game was the fifth time this term they have overturned a losing position to get points on the board - RB Leipzig (4-1), Bayer Leverkusen (4-2), Hoffenheim (1-1) and Augsburg (4-3) all having caved to BVB's never-say-die spirit.

"Obviously we'll celebrate tonight, but then we'll forget about the game and think about the next one," commented a smiling Sancho, the former Manchester City youth player Sancho having more than played his part in Dortmund's resurgence with four goals and a league-leading six assists in his 11 Bundesliga appearances so far this season.
"We just have to keep working hard and focus on the next game. If we keep on doing this we've got a good chance of winning the league or - who knows? - the Champions League. You never know."
