Under the watching eyes of Germany coach Joachim Löw, RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner delivered his case for a maiden international call-up in emphatic style by inspiring the Easterners to a 2-1 triumph against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim on Matchday 18.
After RB had gone a goal down on home turf for the first time ever in the Bundesliga, Werner led the response, scoring shortly before half-time in his customary, poacher fashion to level proceedings. The 20-year-old was influential in the second half as his side mounted wave after wave of attack, before Marcel Sabitzer's late strike secured all three points for Ralph Hasenhüttl's side.
