In-form Kruse scores the winner in Germany

Robbie Kruse was the hero for Bochum in the 2.Bundesliga overnight, scoring the only goal of the game in his side’s win over Jahn Regensburg.

The Caltex Socceroo struck after just seven minutes at the Continental Arena to make it six games unbeaten in the league.

On a frosty afternoon with bits of snow on the pitch, Kruse stayed cool when he sprung the offside trap to race clear on goal before calmly placing the ball past the keeper.

It was hiss fourth goal of the season in all competition’s for Bochum and continues his excellent form in Germany’s second division.

The win takes Bochum up to eighth spot on the ladder.

Kruse will be hoping to maintain his form for the remainder of the season as he looks to head to the FIFA World Cup in Russia in a confident mood.
