A strong Borussia Dortmund II side beat Fürth’s second-string side 2-0 at Stadion Rote Erde this afternoon in front of 244 fans, and the senior management.

With the BVB first team not having a fixture this weekend due to the international break, First Team Manager Gray Surman gave U23 Manager David Wagner the thumbs up to play any first team player that hadn’t been called-up.
