BERLIN (AP) — Two teenagers helped Borussia Dortmund come from behind with late goals to beat host Freiburg 3-1 in the Bundesliga on Friday.
Dortmund coach Edin Terzić’s substitutions all paid off as the 18-year-old Jamie Bynoe-Gittens equalized in the 77th minute and the 17-year-old Youssoufa Moukoko made it 2-1, four minutes before he set up Marius Wolf — yet another substitute — to seal the result in the 88th.
A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Friday:

MUNICH (AP) — Harry Kane’s late penalty earned England a 1-1 draw in Germany in their Nations League game on Tuesday, when Italy and Turkey registered wins.

HAMBURG, Germany (AP) — Freiburg defeated former Bundesliga heavyweight Hamburger SV 3-1 away on Tuesday to reach the German Cup final for the first time.
