Dream debut for Dortmund's Dembele

New Borussia Dortmund signing Ousmane Dembele announced his arrival at the club in style on Friday, scoring just three minutes into his BVB debut in a 5-2 friendly victory over SpVgg Erkenschwick.

Who is Ousmane Dembele?

A number of Schwarz-Gelben stars were absent due to injury or extended holiday after participating in international tournaments over the summer, but head coach Thomas Tuchel was still able to begin with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Matthias Ginter and Sokratis, as well as handing Sebastian Rode his first start since joining from FC Bayern München.

The next goal was not long in coming, as Jacob Bruun Larsen forced an own goal to give Tuchel's men a 2-0 half-time lead. Dortmund's quality shone through after the break, with further efforts from Felix Passlack, Christoph Zimmermann and Gonzalo Castro putting the outcome beyond all doubt, rendering the two late goals from Erkenschwick mere consolations.
