Most people drink a glass of champagne or something when they have something to celebrate. Marco Reus also had every reason to treat himself on Tuesday. The 30-year-old international had previously dominated the game in a spectacular manner. Again. But when Reus strolled out of the stadium cabin in a black tracksuit jacket, he did not have a filled glass at all. Instead, he held a cup of melon bits in his right hand and a plastic fork in his left hand. That's what winners look like.
8: 0 had the DFB-Elf on Tuesday evening in Mainz in the European Championship qualifier Estonia processed. Reus managed the early opening goal and just before the half-time break, a wonderful, soulful free-kick hit. "Probably this was my favorite international goal," admitted even the modest and unobtrusive Reus after the game, while he clutched the cup with the melons.
An uncommon season of Reus had received the perfect final anecdote. Now is the summer vacation, which the BVB attacker, however, was anything but convenient. "If things go well," he said, "you can always keep playing."
Reus goes well with Gnabry and Sané
Reus scored 17 goals in the Bundesliga for Dortmund last season, preparing 12 goals. "He feels the football," enthused his coach Lucien Favre a few months ago. Almost the captain had even led his club to the championship, two points was Dortmund at the end behind FC Bayern. Reus is not only because of his Torgefahr so important for BVB and the national team.
But also because of his unagitated, modest nature and his experience. He tears the teammates with him, he usually chooses the right words during and after the match. "If you're one of the elders," Reus, who became a father in March, came to the magazine a few days ago kicker said, "then you have to go ahead and bring the boys along."
Substitute coach Marcus Sorg, who represented the diseased Joachim Loew in the international match week, praised his currently most important DFB player effusively: "He is in fantastic shape." That was even before the extraordinary Estonia game in which Reus boosted his record to 13 international goals.
