Finnbogason: Augsburg's ice-cool Icelander

Alfred Finnbogason waited patiently in the tunnel of the WWK ARENA after FC Augsburg's 3-1 defeat at the hands of Borussia Dortmund on Sunday.

His opening goal was not enough for his side against in-form BVB, but there was some small consolation for the Iceland international in swapping shirts with visiting skipper Mats Hummels afterwards.

Finnbogason would of course like to take points as well as keepsakes away from games for the remainder of the season, with Augsburg's safety not yet assured, but his goals have been a silver lining amid Die Fuggerstädter's recent struggles.

The 27-year-old has scored three times in seven games since his winter arrival from Olympiacos FC, but FCA nevertheless remain narrowly above the relegation play-off place currently occupied by TSG 1899 Hoffenheim by virtue of goal difference.

"It's disappointing to have no points to show for our efforts," said Finnbogason after the Matchday 27 defeat. "Dortmund ultimately had more than us."

Weinzerl full of praise
