Borussia Dortmund new signing, Michy Batshuayi announced his presence at the club’s debut by scoring in Friday's 3-2 Bundesliga win at bottom side Cologne.

Head coach Peter Stoeger, who was sacked by Cologne in December, threw the Belgian striker in at the deep end to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Dortmund sold their top-scorer to Arsenal for £56 million, then signed Batshuayi hours later as cover until May from Chelsea.

"I am very happy, but the most important thing was the win," Batshuayi told Eurosport.

"It's my first match, it was always going to be difficult, so I am really happy we got the three points."

Having already scored 12 goals for Chelsea this season, Batshuayi scored 35 minutes into his Bundesliga debut when he fired home a cross.

Cologne equalised with an hour gone, but the 24-year-old Batshuayi showed ice-cool finishing to restore the lead less than two minutes later.

He could have finished with a hat-trick having put the ball in the net just before the break, but the video assistant referee (VAR) spotted he was offside.
