Bayern Munich’s Niklas Sule is among the most promising younger defenders in Europe. At 22, he’s already among the best middle backs in Germany. He has a German nationwide crew future, and even perhaps a gift as nicely.
However don’t let any of that distract from the truth that he scored an extremely embarrassing personal objective in opposition to Augsburg on Saturday:
Sule was, after all, helpless, and the objective is extra unlucky than anything. However there are few issues worse than taking a ball to the face in a recreation watched by tens of millions world wide and having that ball then ricochet into your personal web.
Luckily, Sule – who went down instantly after the ball slammed into him – appeared to be OK.
And Bayern as a crew, after all, might be high quality. The Bavarians equalized 14 minutes later, then took the lead eight minutes earlier than halftime. And in the event that they maintain on to beat Augsburg, they’ll clinch a sixth consecutive Bundesliga title.
