For VfL Wolfsburg's Andre Schürrle, it has certainly not been a bad week.
Kruse: 'We know what quality he's got'
The FIFA World Cup winner can be more than satisfied with his performances against SV Werder Bremen and PFC CSKA Moskva, and while he may not have managed to find a breakthrough against FC Augsburg, he did at least play the full 90 minutes for only the third time this season.
"It's not all that big a deal," said Schürrle humbly. "I know that I can decide games and score goals." He began showing that in Wolfsburg colours a week ago, with two assists in a 6-0 win over Bremen, before adding a well-taken goal and an assist in the crucial 2-0 UEFA Champions League win at CSKA . It has not been all that common for the 25-year-old to capture the headlines this season, but belief in his own ability has never waned. Nor has that of his team-mates, in fact.
