🐝7️⃣ The Super Seven young talents at Borussia Dortmund's disposal

Borussia Dortmund has long been admired for its commitment to sticking with young players and backing them to show their talents to the world.

And that tradition has been upheld in 2019/20, with a host of emerging stars showing what they're capable of on the biggest stages.

Here's a look at their special seven. 

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Jadon Sancho

  • 📊 Age: 20
  • 📐 Position: Wide attacker
  • 🥜 Sancho in a nutshell: Dribbles inside or outside his markers, creates goals, makes goals and generally causes havoc in the final third. Developing into a direct, complete attacking midfielder and is understandably at the top of many wishlists around Europe.
  • 🤔 Similar to: Eden Hazard

🇳🇴 Erling Håland 

  • 📊 Age: 19
  • 📐 Position: Centre forward
  • 🥜 Håland in a nutshell: Outmuscles defenders, often shows them a clean pair of heels as he's got a great turn of pace for a big man. Goal-machine who's got a mean competitive streak.
  • 🤔 Similar to: Robert Lewandowski

🇺🇸 Giovanni Reyna

  • 📊 Age: 17
  • 📐 Position: Attacking midfielder
  • 🥜 Reyna in a nutshell: Great first touch, superb balance and a natural ability to glide across the pitch with the ball at his feet. The second-youngest player in history to assist a goal in the Champions League. Tall and elegant. 
  • 🤔 Similar to: Kaká

🇫🇷 Dan-Axel Zagadou

  • 📊 Age: 20
  • 📐 Position: Centre-back
  • 🥜 Zagadou in a nutshell: At 6'5", the French defender is a giant but he's just as adept with the ball at his feet as he is in the air. Can play a variety of positions across the backline too.
  • 🤔 Similar to: Sergio Ramos 

🇲🇦 Achraf Hakimi

  • 📊 Age: 21
  • 📐 Position: Fullback
  • 🥜 Hakimi in a nutshell: One of Dortmund's chief creative outlets and he does it all from right-back. The Moroccan has a great hunger to get forward and is comfortable at right-back, left-back or wide in midfield. Great guy to have in your squad and a manager's dream. 
  • 🤔 Similar to: Dani Alves

🇩🇪 Julian Brandt

  • 📊 Age: 23
  • 📐 Position: Attacking midfielder
  • 🥜 Brandt in a nutshell: Talented technician known for his ability to pull off a telling through-ball or key pass, and also a master at set-pieces. 
  • 🤔 Similar to: Mesut Özil

🇩🇪 Youssoufa Moukoko

  • 📊 Age: 15
  • 📐 Position: Striker
  • 🥜 Moukoko in a nutshell: The Cameroon-born naturalized German youngster scored six goals on his Dortmund U19 debut when he was only 14 years old. Certainly, one to watch for the future.
  • 🤔 Similar to: Samuel Eto'o

With Dortmund having been knocked out of the Champions League by Paris Saint-Germain in the round of 16, they'll be focusing on securing a top-four position in the Bundesliga and building again. They're currently 2nd behind Bayern Munich. Neutral fans around the world will be hoping that this core of exceptional young talents can stay and develop together for as long as possible.
