Gotze scored in the 51st minute of Germany's 2-2 draw with Ghana at the World Cup on Saturday.

The goal was preceded by an excellent cross by Thomas Muller, which Gotze took off his face and then kneed the ball into the net. It wasn't pretty, but it still put Germany up on the board first. The goal was Gotze's first career World Cup goal, and he has now scored 10 international goals in 31 appearances.

Gotze came on for Thomas Muller in the 64th minute and scored in the 86th minute of Bayern Munich's 2-0 win over Mainz on Saturday.

Gotze's goal ended a bit of a scoring drought, as the German had not found the back of the net in league play since February 2 against Frankfurt. The 21-year-old has fit in quite nicely with Bayern this season, and is slated to have a long and successful career.

Gotze (muscle injury) is in the starting XI for Bayern's Champions League match against Arsenal on Tuesday.

Gotze was held out of last weekend's 6-1 rout of VfL Wolfsburg, but was never expected to be out for long.

Gotze was held out of Saturday's Bundesliga match against VfL Wolfsburg after picking up a muscle injury while playing for Germany on Wednesday.

The issue does not appear to be a serious one, and Bayern were no worse off, routing Wolfsburg 6-1. Gotze is not expected to be out long, and could very well return for Tuesday's Champions League match against Arsenal.

Gotze, playing as Bayern Munich's lone attacker, scored in the seventh minute of Friday's 2-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach.

Gotze went into the holiday break scoring goals in back-to-back Bundesliga matches, and he has now found the back of the net three straight times in league play, as well as four in the last five. The 21-year old seems very comfortable in the Bayern attack and could be in for more consistent playing time in 2014.

Gotze scored in the 52nd minute before being substituted by Franck Ribery in the 64th minute of Saturday's 3-1 win over Hamburg SV.

Gotze has found the back of the net in three straight games, two of which came in Bundesliga play and another in the Champions League. The 21-year old now has seven goals in all competitions for Bayern, as well as five assists.

Gotze scored in the 90th minute of Bayern Munich's 7-0 win over Werder Bremen on Saturday.

Gotze continues to grow his importance to the Bayern attack, scoring twice in his last three Bundesliga matches, plus another Champions League score. He has started seven of the last eight matches in all competitions for the German giant and remains a solid fantasy producer.

Gotze came on for Mario Mandzukic in the 56th minute and then scored in the 66th of Bayern Munich's 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

Gotze, playing against his old club for the first time since he left after last season, was surprisingly on the bench to start the match, although that didn't stop him from making a huge impact. There is a ton of talent on the Bayern Munich roster, although Gotze seems close to more regular playing time.
