Socceroos goal-keeper Mitch Langerak has played a starring role as Borussia Dortmund knocked off Bayern Munich to win the German Supercup on Thursday morning (AEST).
Langerak repelled every Bayern raid to ensure Dortmund would win the DFL Supercup for the second straight year, as goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang secured a 2-0 win.
The 25-year-old’s flawless game started in just the third minute when he beat out Xherdan Shaqiri’s powerful effort and produced another fine save to deny David Alaba from a free-kick late on.
While Bayern failed to put any concerted pressure on Dortmund’s defence, Langerak was superb whenever called upon and will be hoping to put the pressure on Roman Weidenfeller for the No.1 jersey this season.
Meanwhile, defender Jason Davidson is in line to make his EPL debut for West Bromich Albion this weekend after getting through 60-minutes in a friendly hit-out with the club’s under-21 side overnight.
With the season-opener just a few days away, manager Alan Irvine gave a host of his new signings some game time in the behind-closed-doors 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest, to ensure they are ready for the clash with Sunderland on Saturday night.
