Bayern Munich landed three gamers on our checklist:
No. 82: Robert Lewandowski
Why he is acquired fame: When you may come off the bench and obtain the frankly unreal feat of scoring 5 targets in 9 minutes as Lewandowski did for Bayern Munich in a Bundesliga match towards Wolfsburg, you recognize you are speaking of anyone who’s only a bit particular. Constructed for the 21st century along with his deadly method and supreme athleticism that has been honed by his karate champion spouse, Anna, “Lewangoalski” would possibly simply be essentially the most full heart ahead within the enterprise. — Ian Chadband
No. 91: Thomas Muller
Why he is acquired fame: Muller does not seem like your typical striker, along with his skinny legs and slouchy socks, however he is deadly in entrance of aim, particularly throughout the World Cup. He is solely the third participant to attain 5 targets in a World Cup event twice, and at 27 he has one eye on former Germany teammate Miroslav Klose’s all-time World Cup report of 16 targets. — Elaine Teng
No. 97: Manuel Neuer
Why he is acquired fame: He was three when he was the final child to reach at observe and the one spot left was in aim. Fortunate for Germany and Bayern Munich, as a result of Neuer went on to redefine the place. The World Cup winner by no means misplaced the thirst to play outfield, and as an alternative integrated his ability with the ball into his goalkeeping. The last word sweeper-keeper, he is pretty much as good along with his ft as along with his palms. Right this moment, because of Neuer, it is not sufficient for keepers to only block photographs; the offense begins there. — Elaine Teng
