Ilkay Gundogan Has Won A Game By Every Single Digit This Season
Following Germany's 8-0 demolishment of Estonia, Ilkay Gundogan has now won at least one game 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 or 9-0 this season.
Gundogan got himself on the scoresheet as Germany romped to victory against Estonia in their Euro 2020 Qualifier Group C match.
The 28-year-old played 41 times for Manchester City and scored five goals as they swept the board in England.
They ended the season winning the Premier League, Carabao Cup and FA Cup as well at the Community Shield back in August.
Gundogan found himself a crucial part of that midfield despite some City fans not appreciating the German's exploits at the Etihad.
Meaning in part, he's contributed to these insane scores so we're going to run down a few standout games en route to this remarkable record.
City won multiple games 1-0 but the obvious standout fixture is their penultimate game of the season at home to Leicester City, infamous for Vincent Kompany's thunderbolt that put the title in City's hands.

City's dominance also extended into the Champions League, with a 7-0 slaughtering of Schalke in their Round of 16 tie in Manchester.
The aforementioned Estonia win gave Gundogan the complete set, but we can't forget City's ruthless domination of Burton Albion which ended 9-0.
Despite starting the season as back up to Fernandinho, Gundogan ended the season with 36 starts in all competitions, including 23 in the league, scored six times in the Premier League and assisted three more.
The German now holds a statistic which is likely to be unmatched for some time.
