No bin man ting.

November 12th 2018

Reiss Nelson became the joint-highest scoring Englishman in top-tier league football after his winner for Hoffenheim on the weekend.

Nelson scored his sixth goal of the season after coming off the bench in Hoffenheim’s 2-1 win over Augsburg on Saturday, where he’s now averaging a goal every 53 minutes in the Bundesliga.

He’s scored the same amount of goals than Callum Wilson, Harry Kane, Glenn Murray and Raheem Sterling who are all regular starters for their respective sides, with Nelson having to make do with making an impact off the bench.

He’s also now the second highest teenage goal scorer in Europe’s top 5 leagues after Kylian Mbappé, in what’s looking like Nelson’s breakthrough season on-loan in Germany.
