Video: The Future of BVB? Julian Schwermann Scores Stunner vs Maccabi Haifa

Borussia Dortmund reached the last 16 of the UEFA Youth League last night, as Julian Schwermann took centre stage with an outrageous strike.

Schwermann is usually deployed as a right back, having made three appearances for Germany U-18’s.

However, last night the youngster appeared to take on the role of a lethal finisher as he pulled off this impressive Marco Van Basten impression:

Dominik Wanner’s pinpoint cross found Schwermann in acres of space at the far post, after the 17-year-old had executed an inch-perfect run into the opposition box.

However, Schwermann still had a lot to do.

And didn’t he make it look easy.

Schermann let rip at Royie Fucs goal and his explosive finish left the Maccabi Haifa goalkeeper with no chance.

Not a bad technique from a player who is more accustomed to stopping the cross rather than taking advantage of one to seal a victory.

The draw for the last 16 of the competition takes place on February 13.
