Lewandowski Just Scored A Stoppage Time Golazo That's Real Easy On the Eyes

Lewandowski chested down the ball, reached out for a graceful take-down touch, and without letting the ball touch the carpet, he fired off a perfect left-footed shot.

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski plays handsomely. There's really no other way to put it. It's not that he is particularly handsome himself, per se—he's no Sonny Bill Williams, I'll tell you that—but the guy just makes touching the ball look so good.

Take today against Freiburg, for example. In stoppage time with an impending draw, Franck Ribery came blazing down the left flank, sent in a cross to Lewandowski, who was smothered in Freiburg defense (and even one of his own teammates). Despite that suffocation, Lewandowski chested down the ball, reached out for a graceful take-down touch with his right foot, stepped back, and without letting the ball touch the carpet, fired off a left-footed shot into a perfect post deflection to the back of the net. Handsome, handsome stuff.

Let's just glance this from another angle:

Lewandowski had some catching up to do, as it happens, because Freiburg did some dapper work of its own to first get on the scoreboard:

Ooh, that's pretty.

But this outstanding solo work by Lewandowski—which gave Bayern their three points—is truly the Sonny Bill Williams of goals. It's just that handsome.
