Serge Gnabry has become the fastest player in history to score 10 goals for Germany


Serge Gnabry has had a pretty special October. 

Last Wednesday, he scored four times as Bayern Munich humiliated Tottenham 7-2 in the Champions League. 

His performance earned him the match ball and a 10/10 rating from L'Equipe - something that is very rare indeed.  

The 24-year-old's impressive club showings have seen him called up for Germany's fixtures against Argentina and Estonia this week too.

The first match took place on Wednesday evening and it didn't take long for Gnabry to make his mark. 

He scored within 15 minutes, poking the ball past goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin after some good play in the box.

It's his 10th goal for Germany and with it, Gnabry has set a new national team record. 

He's become the fastest player to reach double figures for Die Mannschaft, scoring 10 times in just 11 appearances. 

Gnabry broke a Germany record on Wednesday

Miroslav Klose previously held the record, doing so in 13 games.

It's a very impressive feat for Gnabry to achieve then. Here's how he did it: 

November 11, 2016 - three goals vs San Marino
November 15, 2018 - one goal vs Russia
March 24, 2019 - one goal vs Holland
June 11, 2019 - two goals vs Estonia
September 6, 2019 - one goal vs Holland
September 9, 2019 - one goal vs Northern Ireland
October 9, 2019 - one goal vs Argentina 

Gnabry's goalscoring record is impressive

Between those fixtures, Gnabry didn't score in other games against Belarus, Holland, France and Italy. 

It's also important to note that injury and call-ups to Germany's youth team stopped him playing for the senior side between 2016 and 2018. 

But when he does play, he does score and it's likely he'll be very much involved for his nation they push for Euro 2020 qualification and beyond.

Gnabry should be involved in Germany's upcoming qualifiers

The German's are currently top of their qualifying group for next summer's tournament, but level on points with second-placed Northern Ireland on 12. 

Holland are close behind with nine points, meaning it's still very tight. Every qualifying fixture matters and Gnabry will be hoping for another goal or two against Estonia next week.
