Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho made history in the Bundesliga despite his team’s 4-1 defeat to RB Leipzig on Saturday. Sancho’s stunning goal in the 20th minute marked his 40th goal in Germany’s top flight, surpassing Tony Woodcock as the highest-scoring Englishman in the Bundesliga.

Sancho’s achievement is a testament to his skill and dedication, and he took to Instagram to reflect on the “bittersweet” moment. He thanked the traveling fans for their support and acknowledged the record, saying, “A bittersweet moment also for breaking the English record goal scorer in the Bundesliga surpassing the legend Tony Woodcock!”

However, Sancho’s record may not stand for long, as Harry Kane is closing in fast. The England captain has already scored an impressive 35 Bundesliga goals since joining Bayern Munich last summer and has three league games remaining this season to match or break Sancho’s record.

Kane bagged a brace in Bayern’s 2-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, and his goal-scoring form shows no signs of slowing down. Sancho, on the other hand, has three games left to increase his goal tally before returning to Manchester United at the end of the season. His future is still uncertain ahead of the transfer window reopening this summer.

Despite the uncertainty, Sancho’s achievement is a significant milestone in his career, and he will be eager to add to his goal tally in the remaining games. The Bundesliga has witnessed some incredible talent over the years, and Sancho’s name is now etched alongside the greats. Whether he holds onto the record or not, his place in Bundesliga history is secure.
