Socceroo the hero in dramatic German Cup win

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.
