Borussia Dortmund's Felix Passlack juggles with gum

Borussia Dortmund took on second-tier Union Berlin in the DFB Pokal on Wednesday evening, fielding a somewhat depleted team due to a heady mix of injuries and general rotation.

Teenage midfielder Felix Passlack was deployed at left-back, with the 18-year-old grasping the opportunity to demonstrate his impressive control with a little number taken straight from the Mesut Ozil playbook.

After spitting out his gum, the youngster juggled it several times before finally (after one botched attempt) volleying it back into his own mouth.

Kind of cool. Kind of gross.

Anyway, it eventually took a penalty shoot-out for Dortmund to sneak past their opponents on the night, thus earning themselves a third round tie against Union's cross-city neighbours Hertha.
