Robert Lewandowski scored his historic goal in the 90th minute, breaking Gerd Müller’s 49-yea- old single season record. The Bayern Munich striker was asked how he felt after the match saying, “I have no words. I tried to shoot the goal for 90 minutes, I tried everything — and it fell in the 90th minute. I am very happy.”

Lewandowski further elaborated on the moment when the ball finally went in: “I saw that Leroy [Sane] shot, then I just simply speculated. Naturally, I wanted to score the goal earlier, but I knew that the situation would come. I also thank my teammates for trying everything they did.”

As Lewandowski mentioned, he had tried and tried to score the goal sooner in the game, but fellow Polish international and Augsburg keeper, Rafal Gikiewicz had other ideas. When asked about his compatriot’s day in goal, Lewandowski said, “I wasn’t angry, but disappointed. I asked myself why a goal hadn’t worked out today. But thanks again to my teammates, they are also on this record of mine.

When asked if this was the greatest success in his life, Lewy downplayed it for the moment at least. “It was a special moment, it was historic. But I can’t quite classify it yet, so soon after the game.”
