Schalke's cup runneth over

Schalke won their first major trophy for nine years as they secured the

DFB-Pokal with a comfortable victory over second division Duisburg at Berlin's

Olympic Stadium.

The final, which is expected to be goalkeeper Manuel Neuer's last game for the

club, was effectively over as a contest by half-time as goals from Julian

Draxler, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Benedikt Howedes put the Bundesliga side in

control.

Jose Manuel Jurado and Huntelaar added further goals after the break to

complete the rout.

As expected the Champions League semi-finalists dominated from the off and they

took the lead after 18 minutes.

Jefferson Farfan's pass found Draxler in space, and the midfielder made some

room for himself before getting away a powerful shot that flew low into the

net.

And it only took another four minutes for Schalke to double their advantage as

Farfan's low cross saw Holland striker Huntelaar toe-poke the ball beyond David

Yelldell in the Duisburg goal.

After the shock of conceding two quick goals Duisburg, who had beaten

Kaiserslautern and Cologne on their way to the final, regrouped and had a couple

of decent chances to pull a goal back.

Firstly, Neuer, who has been linked with Bayern Munich and Manchester United,

had to be alert to deny Sefa Yilmaz after a defensive error before Olcay Sahan

fired over the bar after being set up by Yilmaz.

But any hopes of a comeback were killed off two minutes before the break, as

Farfan whipped in a corner from the left and Yelldell failed to get to the ball

before Howedes who directed the ball into the unguarded net.

Schalke's fourth goal arrived after 55 minutes as Huntelaar's pass saw Jurado

race through the hapless Duisburg defence to slot the ball beyond Yelldell.

And the rout was completed with 20 minutes to go as Huntelaar latched onto a

misplaced pass from Goran Sukalo before firing into the bottom left-hand

corner.
