Julian Weigl is one of the best young defensive midfielders in the world. He's been extremely impressive for Borussia Dortmund even though he's never looked like he's even a remote threat to score goals.

Hey @JuWeigl, congrats on your FIRST senior goal. Not bad! #UCLonFOX @HeinekenSoccer #UCL https://t.co/lao7DMIKM2— FOX Soccer (@FOXSoccer) October 18, 2016
