Heurelho Gomes made an impressive debut as Hoffenheim returned to winning ways in the Bundesliga.
Gomes produced a number of fine saves as Hoffenheim beat Freiburg 2-1 at the Rhein-Nektar Arena on Saturday.
He was actually beaten inside five minutes, having initally kept out Max Kruse's shot, the forward followed up to make it 1-0 but Hoffenheim responded with two goals from Kevin Volland securing a first win of 2013.
There were three debuts in total for our players out on loan.
