Timo Werner, who plies trade for Red Bull Leipzig, failed to make a mark in the 2018 World Cup as he couldn’t score a single goal in 266 minutes against the likes of Sweden, Mexico and South Korea.

Ahead of the Asian Cup, India’s Jeje Lalpekhlua too is undergoing a poor run of form as the Mizoram striker hasn’t found the back of the net in the Indian Super League (ISL) this season in over 550 minutes. In fact his last goal for the club came last season on March 13th.

The German striker had a few words of wisdom for the Chennaiyin FC striker as India gear up to face Thailand this weekend.
