weidenfellerRoman Weidenfeller’s fantastic performance between the sticks during Dortmund’s hard-fought 1-0 win in Hanover on Saturday has earned him the T-Mobile Player of the Week award. The 34 year-old ‘keeper made a string of impressive saves late on to deny the home side an equaliser.

The voting takes into account the midweek matches as well as the past weekend, but it was Artjoms Rudnevs for his hat-trick on Wednesday and Hassim Ben Khalifa’s two goals in a minute on Saturday that won them places in the Select XI upfront.
