With Germany losing superstars like Bastian Schweinsteiger and Philipp Lahm to international retirement, midfielder Joshua Kimmich has begun to stake his claim as one of the country’s best players.
The Bayern Munich youngster has been an absolute rock in the heart of midfield all season, rated as the 5th best midfielder in the Bundesliga by Squawka Statistics (behind three other Bayern players, of course). He has cemented himself as an regular part of the German squad as well, logging the full 90 minutes (or more) in all of Germany’s last 12 matches.
But that’s not all. He can flash the leather too. In Germany’s 1-1 friendly draw with Denmark on Tuesday, Kimmich scored his side’s only goal in acrobatic fashion.
It seems bicycle kicks are in vogue this calendar year, and you can add the 22-year-old’s to the rapidly growing list.
