    Examining How Guerreiro Might Fit Best in Dortmund's Plans

    When Borussia Dortmund announced the capture of Raphael Guerreiro from Ligue 1 outfit FC Lorient in June, most fans will have quickly pigeonholed him as competition for long-serving left-back Marcel Schmelzer. The €12 million signing was anything but a household name, and what little most people knew about him probably stemmed from watching Portugal's opening match at Euro 2016 two days before the transfer was confirmed by the club's official website—there aren't too many Lorient experts in Germany, after all. The Black and Yellow faithful naturally watched Portugal's games with greater interest and will have grown more and more excited with their club's new signing. Guerreiro was arguably the best full-back of the competition and thoroughly deserved his inclusion in the official UEFA team of the Euros.
