Fans and teammates recognize the 22-year-old’s similarity to actor Max von der Groeben’s character in a popular German movie, Daniel ‘Danger’ Becker, and thus Joel has earned the nickname ‘Danger’. And he’s lived up to that moniker this season. The Finnish national player scored all three goals in the 3-1 victory against Hamburger SV within 15 minutes. The unconventional hat trick remains the highlight of his career. More highlights from Joel await him and the Werkself in the second half of the season.
