Five goals in nine minutes, Lewandowski 5-1 Wolfsburg112 views
MUNICH: Bayern Munich’s substitute striker Robert Lewandowski scored five goals in nine minutes to create a new record for the fastest 5-goal haul in Bundesliga’s 52 year-old history.
Poland’s forward came on from the bench in the second-half of the game when Bayern was 1-0 down to their rivals Vfl Wolfsburg, courtesy to Caligiuri first-half goal in the 26th minute of the game. A thunder-bolt striker from Wolfsburg’s winger went pass from Germany’s No.1 goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.
But on this day no body had on their mind that what is coming next, as Lewondowski struck five goals in 51st, 52nd, 55th, 57th and 60th minute of the game. He with the help of left-winger Costa and Mario Gotze crushed the defense line of Wolfsburg, it was something unbelievable which left Bayern’s own coach with his hands on his head.
After the match, Barcelona’s former coach Pep Guardiola said that he’s happy for Robert as he is regaining his confidence back which is good for us in future. While explaining his reaction to Lewandowski’s five-goal thriller, he said that I didn’t understand his five goals not as a coach neither as a player, I never had that kind of experience on field.
On the other hand, Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking said that Robert is a world-class striker he scored five goals he could have scored seven also, but it shouldn’t be happening against a quality defense like us. The most spectacular goal of Lewandowski was the fifth one an impossible volley just inside the box.
