STUTTGART, Germany (AP) — Silas Wamangituka sealed a 2-0 win for Stuttgart over Mainz on Friday for the promoted team’s first victory at home in the Bundesliga.
The Congolese striker completed a one-man counterattack by running 80 meters from the edge of his own penalty area, beating two opposing players and scoring his 11th goal of the season.
It was Stuttgart’s first win at home in nine attempts.
The home side’s players wore a special commemorative jersey. The usual red stripe across the front and back was replaced by a rainbow stripe to deliver a message in favor of diversity and tolerance. The club’s crest and kit manufacturer’s logo were also in rainbow colors.
