They were scenes for connoisseurs. Moments of the highest footballer art. And the re-evidence about which talent Florian Wirtz has easy. The 18-year-old, who still stormed for Bayers’s offspring, demonstrated his extra class at 3: 4 against the BVB in the first half.
This is not only the filigree technician, but especially at the first two hits of the Werkself. The first out of three Leverkusen leadership goals achieved the teeen with the marked clearance in front of the gate when he placed the ball with the pieke untenable for BVB-Keeper Gregor Kobel flat in the right corner.
It was the eighth Bundesligator for Wirtz, which is the most recent player at the age of 18 and 131 days, which carries out in the German upper house so often. Previously, this record of the former Dortmund Jadon Sancho (now Manchester United) inherent, who was in his eighth goal success in the Bundesliga 18 years and 321 days young.

And also the Leverkusener 2: 1, in which Wirtz was also significantly involved with a fine passport on Patrik Schick, means a new record in German football. However, Wirtz grabbed Wirtz on the last pusher. So far, his former teammate Kai Hanctz (today FC Chelsea) was listed as the latest player, which brought about nine assists in the Bundesliga. Hanctz was exactly one day older than wirtz, so 18 years and 132 days young when he succeeded.
No record seems safe in front of the freshly baked international. But Wirtz, who was also working at 17 years and 34 days on June 6, 2020 at 2: 4 against Bavaria Munich as the youngest Bundesligatorialist, has strongest competition in the hunt for top brands: So he has his record as a youngest scorer already some time ago lost to Dortmund’s Youssoufa Moukoko (16). And Munich’s Jamal Musiala is currently sitting in the neck. He also achieved his eighth league at the 4-1 victory in Leipzig, is an age of 18 and 197 days compared to Wirtz but already an old bunny. But the lead by Bayers TopTalent is only 66 days.
