Video: Oliver Burke Scores on First Start For RB Leipzig

Oliver Burke scored on his first start for RB Leipzig earlier today.

The Scottish youngster had made two substitute appearances for the Bundesliga outfit since signing from Nottingham Forest in a £13 move in the summer.

He made an instant impact on his debut, producing a great assist as Leipzig shocked Borussia Dortmund 1-0 two weeks ago.

And now Burke has made more headlines on his full debut by scoring just minutes into the game against Köln earlier today.

The wideman started the move on the right before finishing it off in the box after a cute pass from Marcel Sabitzer:

Burke is aided by the deflection as the ball beats the goalkeeper, but he won’t care – and neither will Gordon Strachan or any Scotland fans.

The winger – who has three international caps already – is exciting everyone in Scotland with his start to life in Germany and he should play from the start when the Tartan Army continue their World Cup qualifying campaign against Lithuania in two weeks.

Scotland fans – how impressed have you been with Burke?
