Dortmund's Goetze out of Champions League final

Dortmund's Goetze out of Champions League final

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mario Goetze will miss Saturday's Champions League final against Bayern Munich after failing to recover from a hamstring injury.
Dortmund says Goetze suffered a recurrence of the problems that forced him off in the semifinal second leg against Real Madrid and will not be fit in time to face his future club at Wembley, London.
It would have been the 20-year-old's last game for Dortmund before his 37-million euro switch to Bayern next season.
Goetze says "the final was my main aim and I fought hard for it in the last weeks. I'm incredibly sorry that I can't help the team in this important match. I have full confidence in our team and will of course travel with the side to London to support the lads."
