Well, turns out that Pierre-Michel Lasogga had a bit more than a goal to celebrate yesterday.
Lasogga flown home to Germany this evening. Baby daughter was born on Friday night. Played and scored today regardless.— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) September 23, 2017
The littlest Lasogga was born Friday in Germany and so the new dad did what any new dad would do if he could, he went out and scored a goal for his new little girl.
Here’s wishing all the best to him and his partner and their baby.
