Justin Eilers (born 13 June 1988) is a German professional footballer who plays as a forward for Werder Bremen.[2][3]

Career[edit]

Born in Braunschweig, Eilers made his professional debut on 13 September 2008 for hometown club Eintracht Braunschweig in a match against Kickers Offenbach.[4]

After leaving Braunschweig in 2009, Eilers went back into semi-professional football until signing with Dynamo Dresden of the 3. Liga on 20 June 2014.[5] He was voted "Player of the Season" for the 2015–16 3. Liga season.[6]

In April 2016, Werder Bremen announced Eilers would be joining the club on a three-year contract in the summer.[7] In the first half of the 2016–17 season, he suffered from a hip injury and underwent a groin operation which, in connection with the resulting training deficit, kept him out of action. In the second half of the season, he played in the club's reserves to regain fitness and match practice[8] before he suffered another injury tearing his anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in May 2017.[9]
