Rostov’s Teenage Goalkeeper Wins MVP, Lewandowski Marks 33 Goals

Robert LewandowskiRobert Lewandowski’s goal resolve is unmatched and remains unperturbed by speculation that he could leave the Bundesliga champions.

Bayern Munich’s supreme poacher, Robert Lewandowski, should be another name to discuss in football.

When does the Polish striker ever relent in scoring?

Even after Bayern were crowned Bundesliga champions for the eighth consecutive season, Lewandowski is still going after goals and he proved that the hunger lives on by scoring a brace against Freiburg last Saturday.

It was the Pole’s 32nd and 33rd league goals, a new personal mark for a foreigner in the Bundesliga.

According to the Bundesliga website, “Only four times in Bundesliga history has someone scored more goals in a single campaign: Bayern icon Gerd Müller, who hit 40 (1971/72), 38 (1969/70) and 36 (1972/73), as well as Cologne’s Dieter Müller, who posted 34 in 1976/77.”

Rostov Teenage GoalkeeperRostov’s Teenage Goalkeeper Wins Man Of The Match Award After Conceding 10 Goals

It is not every day that a goalkeeper concedes 10 goals and wins the man of the match award – at least, Rostov goalkeeper has restored this fate for goalkeepers.

The Russian Premier League last weekend saw interesting times when six first team players of FC Rostov were diagnosed with Covid-19.

The team’s manager, former Russian international, Valeri Karpin, had no other option than to draft in the youth team as the whole senior team had to be quarantined.

Rostov finally lost 10-1 even though they scored the first goal of the match and their teenage goalkeeper, 17-year-old Denis Popov managed to conceded 10 goals as well.

Although Denis Popov is 17, he managed to also set a league record as he made 15 saves, which included a penalty from Anton Zabolotny and was thereafter named as the match’s most valuable player. Talk of mixed blessings in one tragic defeat of sort!
