Watch: Can breaks the internet with debut golazo

Watch: Emre Can breaks the internet with stunning long-range golazo in Dortmund debut

February 8, 2020 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The winter signing announced his return to the Bundesliga in a remarkable fashion.

New Borrusia Dortmund signing Emre Can somewhat defied the laws of physics to grab a goal in what was his first-ever Bundesliga game for Die BVB. The 26-year-old German midfielder sparked a frenzy on social media by scoring his side's second against Bayer Leverkusen although they ultimately lost.

Saturday evening's blockbuster was brought into life after Leverkusen's Kevin Volland grabbed his eighth goal of the season with a thunderous low-strike in the 20th minute. Two minutes later, Mats Hummels restored parity by heading home Jadon Sancho's corner-kick.

In the 33rd minute, Borussia Dortmund took the lead for the first time through an incredible goal by Emre Can. The former Bayern Munich and Leverkusen player announced his presence in his first start for the men in black and yellow by netting a sensational curler from about 26 yards out. Watch the goal below:

Nevertheless, the goal failed to put Lucien Favre's men in the driving seat ahead of half-time with Volland smashing in his second of the night in the 43rd minute. The topsy-turvy ride resumed after the break as Raphael Guerrero's 63rd-minute goal put Dortmund ahead once more but respective goals from Leon Bailey and Lars Bender in the 81st and 82nd minute sealed the all-important three points for the hosts.

As things stand, Die BVB are now third on the Bundesliga table with 39 points and trail leaders Bayern Munich - who have a game in-hand - by two points. For Emre Can, a win would have sealed the hard day's work but the goal should be enough to spur him on in subsequent fixtures. A dip in form following his transfer from Liverpool to Juventus has seen the midfielder move to his homeland in a bid to get his career back on track. 

Although he joined the Signal Iduna Park outfit in an initial loan deal, the German club has the option to by him for 25 million euros at the end of the season if they are satisfied with his performance.
