Chelsea’s Andre Schurrle is currently thriving in his attacking role for the German national squad in the run up to Brazil 2014, a hat-trick against Sweden in the qualifying stages marking him out as a betting tip for some of the more unusual World Cup match betting markets such as to score two or more Goals, in addition to traditional first/last/anytime scorer markets.
Schurrle began his career at local club Ludwigshafener SC, before spending three years at FSV Mainz 05 from 2006 at which he helped claim the Under 19 Bundesliga in 2009 as a youth player for the squad.
Schürrle made his Bundesliga debut also in 2009 for Mainz 05 against Bayer Leverkusen, scoring his first two league goals in a 3-2 away win against VfL Bochum. After scoring a total of 20 goals from 68 appearances, Schurrle then signed a five-year contract with Bayer Leverkusen for £6.5 in 2011.
He scored on his debut against SG Dynamo Dresden in the German Cup, scoring a first Bundesliga goal to level their game against Borussia Mönchengladbach in October. Schurrle scored six goals during the 2011-12 season while playing in a winger's positing rather than his traditional Forward role which he will use for Germany's World Cup fixtures, and netted a total of 23 from 83 appearances with Leverkusen.
Premier League side Chelsea had been consistently keeping their focus on Schurrle, and finally agreed a deal of around £18 million to bring the German to Stamford Bridge in June 2013. His first goal for Chelsea arrived during a pre-season friendly against AC Milan, before scoring a goal against Manchester City during a 2-1 victory and then later netting twice spectacularly against Stoke City, despite Chelsea going on to lose the game 3-2.
In 30 appearances for the German national squad since his debut in 2010 against Sweden as a substitute, Schurrle scored the first of 11 goals for his country against Uruguay during a 2-1 victory.
During his 10 appearances, Schurrle scored four goals in the 2014 World Cup qualifying stages. His chances of a hat-trick are a possible betting temptation having done so for Germany during a 5-3 defeat of Sweden in that period.
