Soccer-Bender twins on target a minute apart for different teams


BERLIN, Jan 25 (Reuters) - Twins Lars and Sven Bender achieved another milestone in their parallel careers after scoring within a minute of each other as the Bundesliga restarted following its mid-season break on Saturday.

Lars drilled the ball home from 22 metres in the fourth minute for Bayer Leverkusen against Freiburg, while Sven notched a fifth minute opener for Borussia Dortmund in their clash with Augsburg.

The 24-year-olds, who previously played together at 1860 Munich before being snapped up by their current clubs, are also both Germany internationals and strong contenders for a spot at the World Cup later this year. (Reporting by Karolos Grohmann; editing by Josh Reich)
