Player to Watch – Kevin Volland

Kevin Volland has made a fine start to the Nenad Bjelica era at Union Berlin and the attacker’s goal against Real Madrid on Tuesday evening was his second in as many games since the appointment of the Croatian coach. Volland has bagged three goals in his last four appearances overall for the Iron Ones.
