Congolese winger Silas Wamangituka scored for his fourth consecutive Bundesliga game on Friday as his end-to-end goal after an 80-metre sprint sealed Stuttgart’s 2-0 win at home to strugglers Mainz.
After striker Sasa Kalajdzic gave Stuttgart the lead 10 minutes into the second-half, Wamangituka showed his stamina and skill to score with a run from the edge of his own box.
With Mainz hunting the equaliser, a charged-down shot fell to Wamangituka, who dribbled the length of the pitch before beating two defenders to fire home 18 minutes from the whistle.
The 21-year-old’s stunning effort means he has scored 11 times in Germany’s top flight this season. The win leaves Stuttgart 10th.
