Grafite's golden moment

Cologne - It was a goal which would have lit up any match, not least the most important fixture of the season.

Memorable goal

VfL Wolfsburg and FC Bayern München were level pegging in the hunt for the 2009 Bundesliga title.

Together with Edin Dzeko, Grafite had sustained the Wolves' unlikely challenge for a maiden Bundesliga title, but what followed in the closing stages of an historic humbling of the Bavarians earned a prominent place in Bundesliga annals.

Perhaps one of the best goals in Bundesliga history, the Brazilian forward tied four Bayern defenders into knots before delivering a delicate backheel which had the entire Volkswagen-Arena faithful holding its collective breath. It seemed to take minutes rather than seconds for the ball to trickle over the line and Wolfsburg to extend a winning streak to eight. The title was ultimately theirs.
