Dream comeback for four-goal Gomez

Postby FCBayernNews » Tue Nov 13, 2012 9:10 pm

Mario Gomez came back with a bang on Tuesday evening as an FCB XI beat fifth-tier FC Falke Markt Schwaben 6-0, the Germany international completing the full 90 minutes and scoring four of his side's goals following a three-month lay-off after ankle surgery. The other goals against the Munich suburban outfit were supplied by Claudio Pizarro and Mitchell Weiser.

"I've not been away for six years. We shouldn't read too much into this. They weren't the toughest opponents," commented a relaxed and realistic Gomez afterwards. Coach Jupp Heynckes declared himself "very satisfied. It was a very good game form the team for 60 minutes, not just from Mario, but from the whole team." Asked if Gomez might even feature in the squad for Saturday's trip to Nürnberg, the boss said there was "no decision as yet."

Decimated side away to Markt Schwaben

In his first match since 4 August, the pre-season LIGA total! Cup meeting with Hamburg, Gomez not only scored four goals but also captained the Bayern side. Due to international call-ups, injuries and illness, coach Heynckes was only able to fild six members of the senior squad: Pizarro, Rafinha, Weiser, Diego Contento, Tom Starke and Gomez. Players plucked from the reserves and the U-19 youths made up the numbers.

The 2,200 crowd saw Gomez emphatically demonstrate the long lay-off has not dulled his goalscoring instinct. Whether in one-on-ones with the home keeper (16, 48), from the penalty spot (28) or with a close-range finish (30), Gomez showed the full range of finishing skills. He also laid on the fifth for Pizarro on the stroke of half-time, but was for once not involved in Weiser's excellent 16th-mnnute headed strike.

"I'm delighted Mario's back," FCB chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told earlier in the day. "He's trained well, but now he needs sufficient time to recover his match rhythm."
