German Cup: Dortmund Beat Frankfurt 2-1 To Win Title

Borussia Dortmund have broken their silverware drought, winning the German Cup final at the fourth consecutive attempt. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sealed the win with an ice cool penalty.
Borussia Dortmund won the 2017 German Cup at the fourth time of asking, beating Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1 in the Olympic Stadium in Berlin.

French starlet Ousmane Dembele gave the Black and Yellows an early lead before Ante Rebic scored a deserved equaliser for Frankfurt.

Despite both teams hitting the woodwork, Bundesliga top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the winner from the penalty spot after goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky brought down Christian Pulisic in the box midway through the second half.

Aubameyang's calmly taken spot-kick was his 40th goal this season for Dortmund in all competitions and ended Dortmund's misery after losing the three previous cup finals in Berlin in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

His winning penalty was Aubameyang's 120th goal in his 190th game in four seasons with Dortmund. However, despite having a contract until 2020, this could be Aubameyang's final appearance having said he will decide his future after talks with Dortmund's bosses.

He is reportedly weighing up bumper offers from Paris St-Germain, AC Milan and China's China's Tianjin Quanjian with PSG his most likely destination.
