Bundesliga turns 50: Konietzka will never be forgotten

“Lothar Emmerich throws his hands in the air. SV Werder Bremen ‘keeper Klaus Lambertz, his head towards the goal-line, has been beaten by Friedhelm ‘Timo’ Konietzka, who turns away celebrating. A Bremen player is down on the ground, shocked. The old stadium clock at Bremen’s Weserstadion still shows 5pm. It is August 24, 1963. Konietzka, born on August 2, 1938, in Lunen, a small town north of Dortmund, has scored the first ever Bundesliga goal.” ESPN (Video)
