Mitch Langerak was the hero as a 10-man Borussia Dortmund beat Bayern Munich in a dramatic penalty shootout to advance to the DFB Pokal (German Cup) final.
The Socceroo gloveman was flawless throughout, making a number of clutch saves, including one from Thomas Muller in extra-time to keep Dortmund alive.
And in a crazy shoot-out he was unbeaten on all four Bayern attempts.
Langerak saved World Cup final match-winner Mario Gotze’s spot kick, while Phillip Lahm, Xabi Alonso and Manuel Neuer all missed the target as Dortmund advanced 2-0 on penalties.
The victory maintains an incredible run for the 26-yearl-old against the German giants Bayern.
In four matches he has played against them in the Bundesliga and DFB Pokal, Langerak has never been on the losing side.
Langerak wasn’t the only Aussie in action on Wednesday morning (AEST).
