BERLIN, June 6 (Reuters) - Bayer Leverkusen teenager Florian Wirtz became the youngest scorer in Bundesliga history on Saturday after netting his first league goal in their 4-2 home loss to Bayern Munich.

The talented teenager came on in the second half and beat Bayern and Germany keeper Manuel Neuer with a sensational finish after cutting inside defender Lucas Hernandez in the 89th minute.

Attacking midfielder Wirtz came through the Cologne youth academy and joined Leverkusen in 2020.
