“Couldn’t ask for a better birthday present” — Jamal Musiala on Bayern Munich’s 3-0 win over Union Berlin

That was one way to celebrate, huh?

Bayern Munich phenom Jamal Musiala turned 20 on Sunday and celebrated in a pretty cool way — with a goal during his squad’s 3-0 victory over Union Berlin in the Bundesliga.

When Thomas Müller darted toward the end line and hooked back a pass, Musiala was there to deposit into the back of the net. Musiala was just one of several standouts for the Bavarians, but he was the only one able to don a party hat afterward and blow out the candles on his birthday cake.

After the match, Musiala got together with ESPN’s Archie Rhind-Tutt and detailed his impressions on the game and how it felt to score a goal on his birthday.

It’s worth a watch if you missed it.

Interested in a more in-depth look at the game? Will Julian Nagelsmann stick to this setup? Should he? And is the Bundesliga stronger this season? We tackle all those questions and more in the latest edition of our podcast. Listen to it below or at this link.
