Niclas Füllkrug saves Germany against Spain with his goal a point.

His nickname catches the eye of football fans afterwards.

Munich/Qatar – 29 years young, 1.89 meters tall, center forward by profession: We are talking about Werder Bremen's Niclas Füllkrug.

With his late equalizer (83rd minute) against Spain (1: 1), he gave German football fans hope that something could still happen with a successful World Cup in 2022.

The fact that the native of Lower Saxony is in good shape was already indicated in the Bundesliga.

The attacker scored ten goals in 14 appearances, he is considered a "real nine".

And thus as a type of player that many fans in Germany had recently missed in the national team.

Outside of Germany, the massive striker was previously less well known.

Which is why after the draw against the Iberians, according to

Sport1

, his English Wikipedia article ran hot.

His nickname in particular apparently caught the attention of the social media community.

Because: because of the gap in his teeth, the filling pitcher is called “gap” by some players and colleagues.

"Germany's Niklas Fullkrug, the best 'Personal life' wiki entry you will see for a footballer," says

Sport1

in the comments, among other things.

In English: "Germany's Niclas Füllkrug, the best wiki entry 'personal life' you'll see on a footballer." Ella Brockway, a

Washington Post

journalist , researched Füllkrug and accordingly wrote: "Niclas Füllkrug: Scorer good goals and owns a really fascinating section on his personal life on Wikipedia.”

Under "Personal Life" it says that Fullkrug's nickname is "Gap".

Because of his conspicuous tooth gap.

It has had this name for a long time and not just since this World Cup, of course.

The DFB team still has a good chance of reaching the round of 16 against Costa Rica on Thursday evening (8 p.m., here in the live ticker) (schedule for the 2022 World Cup).

At least then, should the German national team win their first game at this World Cup and Japan should not win against the favored Spaniards.
