Füllkrug heads Werder Bremen to win over Hertha Berlin


BREMEN, Germany (AP) — Niclas Füllkrug went atop the Bundesliga’s scoring chart by heading in a late winner to give Werder Bremen a 1-0 victory over Hertha Berlin on Friday and propel his promoted team into the top half of the table. Füllkrug timed his leap perfectly in a crowded Hertha box to meet Anthony Jung’s cross from deep with a looping header from near the penalty spot. It was Füllkrug’s ninth Bundesliga goal of the season. The 29-year-old Füllkrug was in the second division with Bremen last season but his scoring form this campaign has put him in contention for a surprise place in Germany’s squad for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.
