SERGE GNABRY has become one of the fastest players in history to score 10 goals for Germany.
The Bayern Munich star – who destroyed Tottenham with four goals in the 7-2 Champions League demolition a fortnight ago – struck twice in the 2-2 draw with Argentina last night to achieve the stunning feat.
He overtook Miroslav Klose’s previous tally for Die Mannschaft.
It took Klose 13 caps to get to 10 goals for his country.
Arsenal reject Gnabry made it 10 goals in just 11 caps for Joachim Low’s team.
Despite being a winger, Gnabry has been in incredible goalscoring form.
Here's Gnabry's goals and who he scored them against
Vs Argentina – 2 Goals, Drew 2-2
Vs Northern Ireland – 1 Goal, Won 2-0
Vs Holland – 1 Goal, Lost 4-2
Vs Estonia – 2 Goals, Won 8-0
Vs Russia – 1 Goal, Won 3-0
Vs San Marino – 3 Goals, Won 8-0
The 24-year-old is set to play a key role in Germany’s attempts to win Euro 2020 next year.
He has now scored four goals already for Germany in three matches this season.
Before last night’s brace in the friendly against Argentina, he struck on September 6 in the 4-2 defeat against Holland in the European Championship qualifier.
Three days later he scored in Germany’s 2-0 win in Northern Ireland in another qualifier.
In June, he grabbed two in the 8-0 destruction of Estonia in a qualifier.
It was back in November 2016 that he burst onto the scene in a World Cup qualifier, scoring a hat-trick in an 8-0 rout of minnows San Marino.
