Back on the field, Haller hopes to spark Dortmund’s revival

DORTMUND, Germany (AP) — Sébastien Haller has returned to playing for Borussia Dortmund after two operations for testicular cancer. Now he is setting his sights on reviving his club’s chances following a difficult start to the season. Haller was out of the game for six months before returning as a substitute in Sunday’s 4-3 win over Augsburg. Haller says he spoke with his teammates about the importance of keeping soccer in perspective. Dortmund is in sixth place in the Bundesliga and faces a tricky Champions League match against Chelsea next month.
