Hummels conceded two and was substituted after 80 minutes but put in an assured performance as Dortmund lost Saturday 2-1 to Schalke.

In his first start of the campaign, Hummels looked like his normal confident self. He was comfortable in possession and looked to go forward when he had the ball. He also lasted an impressive 80 minutes before fitness took its toll and Sokratis Papastathopoulos replaced him. Although he was involved in a defence that concede two early sloppy goals, little of the blame laid on his shoulders but he will need to command his team-mates much more effectively to avoid a repeat of the result in next week's Anderlect clash.

Hummels came on as a 74th minute substitute after a lengthy absence as his Dortmund side rescued a 2-2 draw Wednesday against Stuttgart.

Dortmund's captain finally returned for a brief appearance in Wednesday night's game. Having been publicly critical of his team's defensive frailties earlier in the week, he and his team-mates will be relieved that he's back in action for the first time this season. Hummels looked comfortable, kept a clean sheet for the brief period he was on the pitch and in the upcoming matches will likely solidify a defence which has been conceding almost two goals a game in the league. He will surely be involved this weekend at Schalke although it may be too early for a start.

Hummels will be involved for the first time this season against Stuttgart on Wednesday, Bild.de reports.

Following Dortmund's indifferent start to the season, the return of their captain will be a major boost. Hummels is yet to feature in this season's Bundesliga with Dortmund reluctant to throw him into action before fully fit. The return of their World Cup winner will certainly bring much needed solidity to a defense that has already conceded seven goals in the first four league games.

Hummels may be bound for Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund as the two teams engage in negotiations, according to the Daily Mail.

Hummels was part of Germany's World Cup winning side, and the transfer price tag is speculated to be near 16 million. The veteran defender would provide experience and strength in United's back line after losing Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, and Patrice Evra this summer.

Hummels, who suffered a groin injury last Monday against Portugal, started and played all 90 minutes of Germany's 2-2 draw with Ghana on Saturday at the World Cup.

After scoring a goal against Portugal, Hummels was back to his normal defensive self against Ghana. He didn't appear to be affected by his groin at all, and he will be an important piece for the Germans when they face the USA in their final group stage match, needing a result to advance to the knockout stage.
