Nicklas Bendtner was the hero as Wolfsburg clinched the German Supercup with a penalty shootout win over Bayern Munich following a 1-1 draw on Saturday.


Bendtner – who has struggled to establish himself with the DFB-Pokal holders – made his case for a starting berth with a well-taken equaliser followed by the crucial spot-kick amid a dramatic finale as Wolfsburg were 5-4 victors in the shootout.
