Gomez scores four on Bayern return



Germany striker Mario Gomez scored four goals, even managing to burst a football, on his comeback after three months off with injury as Bayern Munich romped to a 6-0 friendly win over a sixth division side.

Having had ankle surgery in August, the 27-year-old Gomez played the full 90 minutes hitting the net four times and for his second goal, a penalty shot following a handball, he burst the ball on its way into the net.

A second-string Bayern team beat local Bavarian side FC Falke Markt Schwaben on Tuesday with Gomez as the star attraction.

"I have played my first game and I am happy about it," said Gomez, who has yet to play a Bundesliga game this season with Bayern seven points clear at the top of the table.

"It was more than just a kick about, but they certainly weren't a strong team.

"I haven't been out for six years, you can't overstate that."

Having had surgery on his let ankle on August 7, Gomez looked sharp on his return and Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes was suitably pleased: "The performance from Mario was great."

Heynckes now has several options for Bayern up front with both veteran Peru striker Claudio Pizarro and Croatia's Mario Mandzukic in form.
