Huntelaar scored his fourth Bundesliga goal of the season as Schalke narrowly overcame FC Augsburg 1-0 Friday.

After a slow start to the season, Schalke have moved to within three points of the Champions League spots and top scorer Huntelaar has been at the heart of a lot of that success. He had a 50% conversion rate against Augsburg, finishing Atsuto Uchida's cross on 37 minutes and is on good form going into Champions League action next week.

Huntelaar played the full 90 minutes and scored as Schalke won a pulsating encounter 4-3 Tuesday against Sporting Lisbon.

Huntelaar has now scored in his last four games for Schalke in all competitions. The Dutchman had a great game against Sporting Lisbon, battled well up front and got his reward when he finished expertly from Chinedu Obasi's pass on 50 minutes. Huntelaar is looking very sharp at the moment and will fancy himself to extend his four-game scoring streak against Leverkusen in the Bundesliga.

Huntelaar scored his third goal of the season in Roberto Di Matteo's first game in charge as Schalke beat Hertha Berlin 2-0 Saturday.

Huntelaar scored for the second successive league game marking an upturn in fortunes for both the striker and his club Schalke. Huntelaar took just 19 minutes to find the net with a header from a Julian Draxler cross and managed a team high of three shots in the game. With the energy and excitement brought in by Di Matteo's appointment expect Schalke to climb the table and Huntelaar to find more goals.

Huntelaar scored a consolation in the 83rd minute of Schalke's 2-1 loss at TSG Hoffenheim on Saturday.

Huntelaar has now scored in back-to-back matches after netting against NK Maribor in the Champions League on Tuesday. It's been a tough go of it so far this season, as his goal Saturday was his first in league play since netting against Hannover 96 back on Aug. 23. He'll look to continue his goal streak after the international break when Schalke host Hertha Berlin on Oct. 18.

Huntelaar played the full 90 minutes but failed to find the back of the net Saturday as Schalke beat rivals Borussia Dortmund 2-1.

Huntelaar continued his indifferent start to the season with a rather average performance against Dortmund. The Dutch striker had one golden chance in injury time but was denied by excellent opposition goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller. His goal in the defeat to Hannover remains his only one of the season but his fortunes are bound to change as long as Schalke continue their revival and move up the table.

Huntelaar scored from the penalty spot four minutes into stoppage time to give the Netherlands' a 2-1 win over Mexico in the round of 16 at the World Cup on Sunday.

It was an absolutely improbable comeback for the Dutch, who trailed 1-0 after 87 minutes. Wesley Sneijder scored the equalizer in the 88th minutes and then Arjen Robben drew a penalty in the box in the 92nd minute, which helped set up Huntelaar's goal. While it was a nice moment for Huntelaar, Robben and Robin van Persie continue to dominate the playtime time up front.

Huntelaar scored in the 65th minute of Schalke's 3-1 win over TSV Eintracht Braunschweig on Saturday.

Huntelaar has now found the back of the net six times in his last three league matches, taking 17 shots in that span. He's as hot as they come right now, and has reached double-digit goals for the third straight season.
