  • Friendly against FSV Zwickau

Borussia Dortmund have played a friendly against 3.Bundesliga side FSV Zwickau yesterday which ended in a 4-4 draw. The benefits of the game went to Zwickau to help the small club financially. The game was a chance for some of the youngsters like Gomez and Isak to get some playing time. Gomez, Yarmolenko, Pulisic and Isak scored the goals for Dortmund.

According to Bild and Frankfurter Rundschau Borussia Dortmund are interested in Eintracht Frankfurt shooting star Marius Wolf. The young German right winger has been one of the surprises for Frankfurt this season playing 33 games, scoring 6 goals and adding 11 assists. Wolf (22) has a release clause of only € million according to the report from Frankfurter Rundschau with several clubs like Napoli, Leipzig and Marseille also interested.

Wolf is an interesting young player who would improve BVB’s depth at the position if Schürrle and Yarmolenko were to leave Dortmund. Getting a player like Wolf for only 5€ million is an absolute no-brainer so BVB should do it.

  • BVB’s Champions League kit

Dortmund’s Champions League kit has leaked and it looks quite good in my opinion. What do you guys think?

  • World Cup nominees

The first preliminary World Cup-rosters have been nominated and some BVB players are part of it. Raphael Guerreiro is part of Portugal’s roster and Marco Reus is in Germany’s 35-man roster. However this does not mean they will definitely be part of the World Cup, the rosters still have to be trimmed down to 23 players before the tournament starts.

The reigning champions roster had a few surprises, Mario Götze who scored the decisive goal in 2014’s WC final was left out of the squad as well as Sandro Wagner after his move to Bayern Munich, meanwhile Nils Petersen from SC Freiburg

On a side note German coach Joachim Löw has extended his contract until 2022 which means he’ll keep his job until the World Cup in Qatar.
