Better than Messi! Dost double makes him Europe’s top goalscorer
Bas Dost is on fire in Portugal! The striker has shaken off his
rocky spell at Wolfsburg to become an instant hero at Sporting
with his consistency for finding the net.
The Netherlands international made the difference again on
Saturday with two goals in a 2-0 win over Nacional, taking his
tally to 24 in 23 Primeira Liga games.
Opening the scoring 13 minutes in with a fine header from
a corner. That goal put him level with Lionel Messi and
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the race for the European Golden
Shoe, but he soon overtook them 20 minutes later when another
corner caused a stir in the defence, allowing him to pounce and
double his tally.
Dost’s personal record for goals in a season came in his final
year at Heerenveen, in which he netted 32 in 34 games.
