Joshua Kimmich hailed as a hero for sealing the win for Bayern Munich
Joshua Kimmich netted the goal in the 82nd minute of the match to break the deadlock of 2-2. He was able to snatch the ball from Thomas Delaney in the midfield and played a brilliant one-two with fellow teammate, Robert Lewandowski.
He then raced into the penalty box but his shot was denied by Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper, Marwin Hitz. The midfielder was lucky after he fell on his stomach as he chipped the ball past the goalkeeper to find the back of the net.
Teammate Manuel Neuer praised the midfielder and said, “That was will and talent at the same time. He did not stay on the ground and still chips the ball in. He’s just a good player.”
Bayern Munich gaffer, Hansi Dieter Flick also shed praise for the German midfielder.
He said, “As long as I’ve known him, his mentality has been very special. He is well on his way to being one of those players who shapes this team and this club. “
