  • Zorc'Batshuayi boasts extraordinary quality

Batshuayi controls the ball in the German first division Bundesliga football match FC Cologne versus Borussia Dortmund in Cologne, western Germany, on Saturday.

"I am very happy with my two goals but of course the most important thing today is the win", he told German Eurosport.

Belgium worldwide Batshuayi joined from Chelsea on transfer deadlined day to replace Aubameyang, who quit Dortmund for Arsenal.

Michy Batshuayi still has a long way to go to make Dortmund fans forget Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who scored a whopping 98 goals in four seasons and a half of the Bundesliga.

Girl, 12, held over school shooting in Los Angeles
The girl holding the firearm "didn't mean to" shoot the 15-year-old girl, he said, according to the station. He said both of the victims are 15 years of age and have been transported to a local hospital.

"My goal at Dortmund is to continue to win the victories so that we can finish as high as possible and play in the Champions League next season".

"He brings a lot from what we need".

"This is what one dreams for after the weeks of discussion and the whole over-riding (Aubameyang) theme, where we have not focused much on sport".

Indiscretions like missing a team meeting, training poorly, missing a team meeting and arranging a video shoot on club premises without permission, tarnished his departure after five years at Dortmund.

Google Parent Company Shares Drop After Quarterly Earnings
Apple Inc (NASDAQ:APPL) posted a record quarterly profit that beat market forecasts as higher prices offset fewer iPhone sales . Heading into today's trading, Alphabet stock was up more than 12% year-to-date, and hit a record high on January 29.

Dortmund needed a goal-scorer and after weeks on Chelsea's bench, behind first-choice striker Alvaro Morata, Batshuayi has a starting berth and that will help his bid for a place in the Belgium squad at the World Cup.

Former Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud was drafted in to replace Batshuayi at Chelsea and could be in line for his debut against Watford on Monday night.

He said: "We lost an extraordinary striker and gained a player who has qualities in front of goal".

The visitors did take the lead 10 minutes before the break, however, when Batshuayi found a route past Timo Horn after excellent work from Jeremy Toljan.
