Nmecha Subbed On, Lewandowski Sets Goals Record As Wolfsburg Suffer Heavy Defeat At Bayern

German-Born Nigerian midfielder Felix Nmecha was in action for struggling VFL Wolfsburg, who were thumped 4-0 by Bayern Munich with Robert Lewandowski setting a new goals record in the history of the Bundesliga.

Nmecha, 21, who is still eligible to represent Nigeria, Germany or England, was introduced in the 58th minute but could do nothing as Bayern sealed a comfortable win.


His older brother Lukas, who has represented Germany twice at senior international level, was not in Wolfsburg’s squad for the visit to the Allianz Arena due to ankle injury.

    This guy Felix Nmecha played with the Man City junior team. A decent midfielder.
    I posted a video of him once here on CSN. He’s likely inclined to play for Germany, like his elder bro Lukas. But who knows, he might opt for Nigeria if we ask nicely 🙂
