Dream debut for Frankfurt's Mexican star Fabian

Eintracht Frankfurt's new Mexican signing Marco Fabian can look back on a dream debut as he provided the assist for Alex Meier's late winner against VfL Wolfsburg.

Praise for Fabian

Meier was the star of the show, but Fabian had a crucial role to play as Frankfurt snatched an unexpected 3-2 victory from the Wolves on Matchday 18. After coming on at half time, the Mexican's quick feet and sharp cross saw him set up Meier, who bundled home the winner.

"I always try to make runs like that," explained Fabian after the game. The 26-year-old moved to Frankfurt from Guadalajara this winter, and is keen to make himself at home in Germany as quickly as possible. He is taking German classes three times a week, but his most important lesson so far has come on the pitch.

"You just need to give the ball to Alex Meier, and he'll stick it in the back of the net," joked Fabian.

Meier was the centre of attention on Sunday – and rightly so. After a quiet first half, the big forward burst into life after the break, drawing his side level before twice putting them ahead. His third goal came in the 93rd minute as he snatched a late three points for the Eagles.
