Published Add your comment

It has been an eventful day in the Premier League today but all the drama at Leicester and Manchester City couldn't quite top what had happened in the Bundesliga 24 hours earlier.

Moritz Stoppelkamp, a midfielder for newcomers Paderborn, certainly made a mark against Hannover.

He helped his side claim a 2-0 win as their fine start to the season continued, and with his side one up already he decided to put the cherry on the cake. 


Standing just outside his own area, the 27-year-old launched a shot that sailed all the way into the net at the other end of the pitch. Facing his own goal, he chested down the ball, swivelled and heaved it down the pitch.

With the goalkeeper out of goal, the ball bounced numerous times before it trickled into the net.It really is an incredible goal, and it broke the Bundesliga record for the furthest goal ever scored.

To make things even better the win puts Paderborn at the top of the Bundesliga table. However things could be about to get ugly, they take on a certain Bayern Munich next weekend. Good luck with that one boys.
