Hummels confident of making Wembley final

Germany defender Mats Hummels said Sunday he is confident of playing in Borussia Dortmund's Champions League final against Bayern Munich at Wembley despite damaging his right ankle.

The 24-year-old centre-back limped out of Dortmund's shock 2-1 defeat at home to Hoffenheim on Saturday, but an MRT scan on Sunday revealed the injury is not as bad as first thought.

"It's not torn and not as bad as we had first feared," Hummels told Sport Bild online.

"I am confident that it'll be OK for the final."

Hummels injured himself while fouling Hoffenheim's Kevin Volland in the area, which led to the first of Sejad Salihovic's two penalties, and then limped off on 78 minutes.

Dortmund take on Bayern in the first ever all-German European Cup final at Wembley on Saturday with Munich bidding to become the first Bundesliga team to win the treble of European, league and cup titles.
