Is he back on track? Wolfsburg’s Mario Gomez seems to be on a roll again. In his career he has attracted many haters. Thomas Berthold was not a great fan either. But now he has sympathy for the good-looking striker. Time to hit the Gomez button?
Mario Gomez has called time on his Germany career after 11 years, 78 caps and 31 goals. The striker is the second of Germany’s World Cup 2018 squad to call it quits after Mesut Özil.
A brace from Robebrt Lewandowski and a nerve-settler from James Rodriguez secured Bayern's first win for a month. The champions weren't at their best but did more than enough despite being reduced to 10 men.
With two wins from two, VfL Wolfsburg are the surprise package of the new Bundesliga season. After two seasons battling against the drop, coach Bruno Labbadia and sporting director Jörg Schmadtke are restoring stability.
With Manuel Neuer looking certain to be on the plane to Russia, the main choice facing Joachim Löw is whether to take Nils Petersen or Mario Gomez as back-up striker. DW's Michael Da Silva expects Gomez to get the nod.
