Borussia Dortmund coach Edin Terzic has allayed fears over Jadon Sancho's injury sustained in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Paderborn after extra time in the DFB-Pokal.

"It doesn't look dramatic, he felt his muscle and had a cramp," Terzic said on the 20-year-old, who was taken off in extra time.

"He worked a lot, ran a lot and also got into the game really well. He kept contributing well to our offensive play," added Terzic.

Dortmund were leading comfortably by 2-0 for the majority of the contest, but had to finish off Paderborn in extra time after conceding two late goals.

Emre Can, who scored the opener, said Dortmund shouldn't have allowed Paderborn back in the game, but underlined that the win is what matters at the end of the day.

"The extra-time was unnecessary. But ultimately it's a cup tie and the win is all that counts. In a month's time, nobody will be talking about that. We performed strongly up until the 2-0. Then we dropped off a bit. We weren't running the extra metre. That wasn't good. Then Paderborn came out fighting after half-time," said Can.

"They performed well, compliments to Paderborn. As I've already said, it's a cup tie. Many good teams have already been eliminated. Winning is all that matters – we managed that. Now we need to keep taking it one game at a time."
