Nigerian descent Ademola Lookman lands Bundesliga milestone

German Bundesliga By: Ambrose Udeme | 05/02/2018

England-born Nigerian striker Ademola Lookman on Saturday made history during his Bundesliga debut after coming on as a substitute to score the winner in RB Leipzig's 1-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach.

His maiden Bundesliga goal means that Lookman is now the first Englishman to score in the Bundesliga since Owen Hargreaves for Bayern Munich on 5 August 2005.

The forward was handed his Leipzig debut against Gladbach on Saturday, three days after signing on loan from English Premier League side Everton, and wasted little time in impressing, rattling home for 1-0 win a little more than 10 minutes after coming on.

The London-born striker collected the ball around 30 yards from goal and with plenty of space in front of him.

Showing confidence and desire beyond his years and experience in the league, Lookman raced past as many as three defenders across the box before firing a perfect shot across Gladbach goalkeeper Tobias Sippel and into the bottom corner.
