Aubameyang scores as Dortmund win German Cup

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang converted a second-half penalty to seal Borussia Dortmund's 2-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in yesterday's German Cup final - on what could be his final Dortmund appearance.

Despite their dismal record in recent DFB-Pokal finals, Dortmund wasted no time in asserting their authority this time around - Dembele capping off a sublime team move with a wonderful turn and finish to put Tuchel's side ahead inside eight minutes.

"I am empty, completely empty now", said Tuchel, whose future is unclear after a row with club bosses.

Tuchel said Dortmund would not have won the title if there wasn't a good bond between him and the players.

But coach Thomas Tuchel kept his players motivated and hungry until the end. "That's why Frankfurt was such a tough opponent, because there's such a great bond between them".

In the eighth minute Ousmane Dembele spectacular maneuver to beat a defender and hammer the ball into the top far corner of the goal Eintracht.

Police made an appeal to Dortmund fans not to celebrate with more pyrotechnics after some were lit behind the west-end goal.

Marco Reus and Marcel Schmelzer came off with injuries at the break and were replaced by Pulisic and Gonzalo Castro, with a particular pressure on the American youngster to make the difference for his side.

Aubameyang nearly put them ahead just past the hour with a spectacular bicycle kick but it was cleared on the line by Marco Fabian and then bounced off the post.

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. But I also know to value it.

Frankfurt reacted exactly as they'd hope to falling behind, however, and despite soaking up a wealth of pressure in the minutes after, it was actually Niko Kovac's men who enjoyed the better chances for a period.

Dortmund's victory also meant Freiburg, who finished seventh in the Bundesliga, will compete in the Europa League qualifying rounds.
