Just as good as the goal that Wazza Rooney scored aged 17 to announce himself to the world (Draxler is also 17)…

As Clive Tyldo might say: Remember the name – Julian Draxler.

Draxler’s wonder goal, scored in the dying moments of extra-time, won the German Cup quarter-final tie for Schalke.

“I cannot describe in words what I am feeling,” Draxler told German television.

“To come on five minutes before the end in a stadium where you have always dreamt of playing and to score such a goal with such a shot in the last minute is just amazing.”

Yes it is.

    I’ve seen this story- I know how it ends.
    In three years, he’ll be off to Bayern in a big money transfer.
    In six, he will be regarded as one of the best players in the world
    In eight, because the Germans are actually great at big international tournaments, he will have won the World Cup.

    In six, he will be regarded as one of the biggest transfer flops of the Bundesliga
    In eight, because the Germans are actually great at big international tournaments, they will win the World Cup without Draxler, but with Mario Götze, who will score the deciding goal and FYI is the real wonderkid.

    Pete, you might have it better than I do… Although for a while there Rooney could do no wrong. Red scum.

    Yawn, you’re all boring.

    He had a wonderful goal. It’ll be time and fate that will decide whether anything happens with his talent.
