DORTMUND, Germany — Mario Gotze said dropping two points was “annoying” after Borussia Dortmund conceded a penalty in stoppage time to draw 2-2 against Hertha Berlin on Saturday.
Gotze, 26, told reporters after the game: “Two points were very much possible looking at the run of play. We had enough chances to kill the game. We cannot be happy with the result and conceding so late is annoying.
“In previous games, we were more efficient in front of goal. But this won’t knock us down.”Jadon Sancho’s brace was not enough for the Black and Yellows to secure all three points. The 18-year-old was close to a hat trick, but had a goal ruled out by the VAR in the 18th minute, as Marco Reus was adjudged to be offside.
Salomon Kalou, who also bagged a brace, equalised from the spot in the first minute of added time after centre-back Dan Axel Zagadou brought down Davie Selke in the box.
Team captain Marco Reus was downbeat after the game, but said that it was a good lesson for the young players.
