At the fifth time of asking, Pep Guardiola has guided Manchester City to a Champions League semi-final as they saw off Borussia Dortmund and the demons of previous quarter-final disappointments on Wednesday. Foden's 90th-minute strike in last week's first leg against Dortmund handed City a slender 2-1 lead to take to Germany. However, that was cancelled out by another burgeoning young English star when 17-year-old Jude Bellingham's first Champions League goal gave a Dortmund a 1-0 lead on the night and the advantage in the tie on away goals. By scoring, the 20-year-old also became just the second player under 21 to score in both legs of a Champions League quarter-final after Kylian Mbappe, who he will face in the semi-finals. Foden also provided what City needed as he is a fresh face, unburdened by previous Champions League failures.
