With the hype of the Euros finally dying down, our boys have returned from vacation and are back in training!
Training began on July 4 in the Dortmund training grounds. BVBTotal has posted a few videos. Both RN and the official BVB account have been keeping us updated on the goings on in training.
Rode, Auba, Papa, Schmelle, Felix and Erik are all featured in the pictures, but the main star at the moment seems to be Ousmane Dembele. He's seen joking around with Auba and Felix, and generally being the life of the party!
His banter with Felix at France's semi-final win against Germany was really adorable.

It seems Dembele will fit right in with our boys! And like our two test games against Spvgg Erkenschwick and Wuppertaler SV showed, he's already made an impact on the pitch.
The team moves to Kirchberg, Austria from July 12 to 17. The Asian tour begins next week, which includes test matches against Manchester United and Manchester City. There will be another training camp in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland from August 3 to 10, before we kick off the new season with the SuperCup against Bayern Munich.
