Turkey wonder-kid makes debut in 4-1 victory over Man Utd

Borussia Dortmund beat Manchester United 4-1 in their pre-season friendly in Beijing, China today.

Castro, Dembele and Aubameyang found the back of the net for Dortmund in the first half.

United summer signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored a second half consolation goal against his former club but Castro scored late on to extend Dortmund’s lead to three goals again just before the final whistle.

Turkish intentional youngster Emre Mor came on in the second half for Ramos to make his Dortmund debut.

Mor put on an impressive display showcasing his dribbling ability against the Premier League giants but was unable to find the back of the net or provide an assist.

The 18-year-old played a role in the fourth goal making an intelligent forward run ahead of goal scorer Castro dragging the United defence out of position.


Fellow Turkish international Nuri Sahin also made a second half performance coming on for Rode.

Dortmund take on United’s cross-city rivals Manchester City next as part of their China tour.
