The score is 1-1 in the third minute of added time in FC Bayern's rearranged Matchday 17 encounter with VfB Stuttgart. But then Rafinha finds Thiago in the box. The unmarked Spaniard rises to meet the cross with a sideways scissor-kick, powering home into the bottom right corner: a wonder goal!

Thiago could hardly have found a better moment or a more spectacular way to score his maiden Bundesliga goal exactly five years ago. The stunner sealed a last-gasp 2-1 victory away to the Swabians, extending Bayern's impressive Bundesliga streak to ten consecutive victories. The Bavarians sealed the championship title only two months later.

Thiago recently proved he's still got it, scoring a similarly sumptuous goal in training (video). We're looking forward to many more wonder goals by the 27-year-old!
