Andre Schurrle is a German footballer who plays for the popular Bundesliga club of BVB Dortmund and national football for Germany. Schurrle was born in Ludwigshafen, Germany on the 6th of November 1990 and he began his career at Mainz 05 in 2009 and he netted his first and second goals for the club against VfL Bochum in a 3-2 win in October 2009.
The German forward then signed for Bayer Leverkusen where he scored on his debut in a German Cup tie against SG Dynamo Dresden and he then scored his first European goal against Valencia CF four days later. Schurrle became an integral player at the German club and he impressed enough to make his debut for Germany in 2010. In 2013 Schurrle signed a deal with English club Chelsea worth 18 million pounds with the German starlet signing a five year contract and he was given the number fourteen shirt last worn by Claudio Pizarro.
Not making the impact with Chelsea as expected and failing out of favour with manager Jose Mourinho, Schurrle moved back to Germany with Wolfsburg which saw the player return to his promised talent and subsequently achieved a 2016 Summer transfer to Bundesliga counterparts BVB Dortmund in a deal worth a reported €30 million.
Schurrle was selected to play in the 2012 UEFA Euro tournament where he helped the side to reach the semi-finals but they lost to Italy 2-1. His first international came against Uruguay in a friendly which ended in a 2-0 win. Schurlle was then selected to be a part of the 2014 World Cup squad which saw the player and his team mates hold aloft the prestigious trophy.
