Robert Lewandowski scored an early candidate for the Goal of the Year on Friday against Freiburg. In the dying moments of the match, Lewandowski popped up to knock home the game winning goal and complete his brace on the day.
Watch just how amazing that goal is. Lewandowski brings Franck Ribery’s cross down with his chest. Then, while falling backwards, he juggled the ball with his right foot to keep it in the air. With the defense closing, Lewandowski somehow poked it through everyone with his left foot and into the back of the net.
Nothing truly shocks us about Lewandowski’s ability in front of goal. Still, Friday’s game winner was something special. The deft touch to bring that ball down with his chest to keeping it up with his right foot to the left footed finish showed everything we love about him.
