WATCH: Borussia Dortmund's Emre Can scores ridiculous 50-yard volley in the DFB Pokal

  • Can scored opener against Bochum
  • Sumptuous volley from halfway line
  • Dortmund held out for 2-1 win

WHAT HAPPENED? Just a few weeks after revealing his battle with cancer back in 2018, the Germany international scored a beauty to put Dortmund ahead in their last-16 cup tie. Can controlled Bochum goalkeeper Manuel Riemann's poor clearance around the halfway line, before striking a volley which bounced a number of times before rolling into the empty net.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Can's effort was cancelled out by a Kevin Stoger penalty just after the hour mark, with Dortmund needing Marco Reus to come to the rescue on 70 minutes to secure his side the 2-1 victory. Edin Terzic's team progress to the DFB Pokal quarter-finals, where they will face any of RB Leipzig, Stuttgart, Nurnberg, Bayern Munich, Union Berlin, Eintracht Frankfurt or Freiburg.
