25-Year-Old Defender Borussia Dortmund Bundesliga
Hummels kept a clean sheet and it was rarely threatened as Dortmund beat St. Pauli 3-0 Tuesday in the DFB Pokal.
The defensive pairing of Hummels and Neven Subotic was far too strong for their lower league opposition's attack. While Subotic dug in deep and made a couple of telling blocks, Hummels swept up comfortably and played the ball to safety. Dortmund are looking much stronger defensively now but will face the ultimate test Saturday when they visit free-scoring Bayern Munich.
