Selfless team-mates help Klose end drought

The most moving of Bayern’s four goals against Berlin on Sunday was the last, occasioned after 70 minutes when referee Kempter blew for a penalty following a foul on Zé Roberto. Miroslav Klose threw the ball to Bastian Schweinsteiger, already successful from the spot to make the score 3-0 a few minutes earlier. But after a brief conference with Italy hitman Luca Toni, Schweinsteiger drew a huge cheer by returning the ball to Klose, who stepped up and coolly netted.

Klose has scored more important goals in terms of results, but Sunday’s effort was important to him personally, as it was his first Bundesliga strike since the winner against Schalke on 1 March, exactly six months ago. “I had a good day today, and I'm obviously delighted I've scored again,” a visibly relieved Klose said afterwards.
