Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has scribbled his name in the oldest history book on earth – the Guinness book of records for his incredible five-goal haul in just nine minutes against Wolfsburg in September.
The 27-year-old came off the bench at half-time with his side a goal down, and blew the opposition away before the hour mark in the Bundesliga clash.
He then struck his first just before the 51-minute mark before adding his second less than a minute later.
LEWANDOWSKI’S 4 RECORDS
Quickest Bundesliga hat-trick
Quickest Bundesliga four-goal haul
Quickest Bundesliga five-goal haul
Most goals by a Bundesliga substitute
He has now received the official record certificates of his achievements as highlighted above.
It’s been an impressive season for
Lewandowski in front of goal, as he has scored 26 goals in 25 appearances for club and country so far to put the Bavarians top of the league table as well as helping his country to Euro 2016 qualification.
Lewandowski tweeted after his four Guinness awards were confirmed on Monday: “It is a great honour to have my achievements on the pitch hit the Guinness Book of Records.”
