The Poland captain boasts an arresting repertoire of strikes, but it is not just his goals that do the talking.
The statistics speak for themselves. His eight-goal debut season haul of 2010/11 the exception to the rule, Lewandowski has comfortably hit double figures in each and every Bundesliga campaign since: 22, 24, 20, 17, 30 and 30. The 29-year-old ranks second to veteran Peruvian Claudio Pizarro (191) on the Bundesliga's all-time list of foreign scorers, and third behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Gerd Müller in the minutes-per-goal department (118, 117, 105).

Happily helping himself to goals which range from the simple to the spectacular – with both feet, from open and set plays - Lewandowski sits well in the company of legends. His Bundesliga report card includes 35 braces, five hat-tricks and one historic five-goal haul. Of his 15 attempted penalties, he has only missed one. Bayern's imperious No.9 recently added postage-stamp free-kicks to his inventory, too. In 228 Bundesliga appearances to date, he has rattled off 152 goals.

Lewandowski also has a creative side. Not a single member of the Bundesliga's current cast of forwards comes close to matching the Warsaw native's impressive tally of 54 assists; the product of a cushioned lay-off, eye-of-the-needle through-ball or visionary punt more typically associated with midfield masters and roaming wide men. The ex-Poznan man is rewriting the all-round striker's rule book, and then some.
Lewandowski's eye-watering numbers are made possible by a devotion to his craft shared by only a select few of his peers. Nicknamed 'The Body' by former Dortmund team mate Nuri Sahin, he has the physique of an L.A. fitness model, the agility akin to an Olympic-gold-medal-winning gymnast and the raw power to pull a truck. Testament to his peerless conditioning, he has only missed 11 matches in seven full seasons of Bundesliga football.
Prolific, selfless and as fit as a fiddle, Lewandowski has to be considered one of the, if not the, most complete striker in world football today – think Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic rolled into one. The indomitable Pole is yet to make a FIFA Best Player three-man shortlist, but 2017/18 could be his year. Suffice to say he would be a worthy recipient of the beautiful game's most prestigious individual award.
