 Schalke's Leroy Sane underlined his status as one of Germany's rising junior stars with his club's second-half winner to seal Sunday's 1-0 victory at VfB Stuttgart in the Bundesliga.
The Germany Under-19 international, who scored three goals in 13 games last season, calmly slotted home Schalke's 53rd-minute decider after pouncing on a mistake in the Stuttgart defence and the victory left Schalke fourth.
Sane, whose father is ex-Senegal international Souleyman Sane, only made his Bundesliga debut in April 2014 and scored in Schalke's stunning 4-3 Champions League win at Real Madrid, last season, before bowing out of the last-16 on aggregate.
The defeat is Stuttgart's fifth in succession to leave them 17th and they only stay off the bottom of the table by virtue of goal difference from Borussia Moenchengladbach. Borussia Dortmund have the chance to reclaim top spot on Sunday evening when they host Bayer Leverkusen looking to defend their unbeaten record after Bayern Munich took over first place after Saturday's 3-0 win at Darmstadt.
