Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has become the second African to ever win the Bundesliga Golden Boot, when he struck a late penalty for Borussia Dortmund on the final day of the season. He finished as the Bundesliga’s top scorer with 31 goals.
Aubameyang scored twice to help Dortmund beat Werder Bremen 4-3 – his first coming three minutes before the break and his second from the spot in the 89th minute.
It put the 27-year-old one goal ahead of Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski who failed to score in the German champions’ 4-1 win over Freiburg.
Ghana’s Tony Yeboah won the Bundesliga t twice whilst playing for Eintracht Frankfurt – in the 1992-93 season and the following year in the 1993-94 campaign.
Borussia Dortmund’s victory over Werder Bremen gave them a third place finish in the Bundesliga and secured their automatic spot in the Champions League group stage.
