A gift goal six minutes into the match and an enterprising second right on the half hour mark enabled shorthanded SV HAMBURG to upend Bundesliga Rekordmeister BAYERN MUNICH 2-1 in the semi-final of the exhibition 2011 Liga Total Cup tournament.

Germany World Cup goalkeeper MANUEL NEUER committed an eggregious error by failing to adequately deal with the cross of Germany international defender DENNIS AOGO from a free kick on the left; 19-year-old South Korea international striker HEUNG-MIN SON collected over on the right and calmly rolled the ball into the back of the net to give SV Hamburg a surprising seventh minute lead.

SV Hamburg were without their top Bundesliga goal-scorer from last season, the projected starting goalkeeper as well as another pair of players away on international duty at the Copa America. Bayern Munich, meanwhile, essentially put out the first team although newly-arrived Brazil international right back RAFINHA was benched in favor of 18-year-old reserve team player CUENYET KOEZ. Despite the presence of all their big guns, the Bavarians still struggled to put a ball past SV Hamburg’s inexperienced shot-stopper TOM MICKEL, the 22-year-old who still has yet to play in a Bundesliga game.

Son, who scored three goals in 13 Bundesliga games after being promoted from the reserve team of die Rothosen last year, grabbed his second goal of the game in the 30th minute after a fine run and right wing cross from youthful SV Hamburg fullback DENNIS DIEKMEIER.

Hamburg SV held firm throughout the contest though put Bayern Munich did pull one back three minutes before the hour; 21-year-old Germany international midfielder TONI KROOS, a second half substitute, scored within seven minutes of coming on just before the hour when his shot from twenty yards beat Mickel and riccocheted of both goalposts.

On the whole, however, Bayern Munich were particularly wasteful and continued to leave the chances go begging.
