The German women’s association achieved the highest victory in this World Cup qualifier. Three returnees from Bayern Munich intensify the competition for the European Championship in England in 2022.
With smiling faces, German footballers celebrated their highest victory so far in the World Cup qualifiers. National coach Martina Voss Tecklenburg’s team cheated the overwhelming choice of player in Braunschweig Turkey With 8: 0 (3: 0).
It was the fifth match victory for the 2016 Olympic champion on his way to the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. “He was really good in a lot of areas today,” Voss-Tecklenburg said, praising his cheerful, goal-hungry squad.
In front of 2,583 spectators, Leah Schuler (7, 11, 67), Jules Brand (62), Laura Freelang (74), Siewki Noskin (80) and Clara Ball (88) scored the goals for the hosts. 1-0 after less than a minute, Kizban Taj conceded an own goal, not Schuller’s favour. Otherwise, the attacker will be dated Bayern Munich A successful hat-trick from the start. This was the highest win in a World Cup qualifier after the 7-0 win against Bulgaria and Israel.
“I just saw that we all want to be on the field and that everyone wants the ball,” Nüsken said in an interview with ZDF. “All the goals were played well, so we have to build on that against Portugal.”
Germany now leads Group H with 15 points ahead of Portugal (13) and has increased the goal difference to 28:1. On Tuesday (7pm / ZDF live) there will be a duel between the two strongest contenders in Faro. Only the first in the group will qualify directly for the final tournament in 2023. The second plays for two other places in the playoffs.
Turkey, ranked 69th in the FIFA world rankings, was not an equal opponent in the selection of the German Football Association. However, Vos-Tecklenburg emphasized, “You can see that we have the potential, that we have the quality.” Your team will play its first international tournament since the 2019 World Cup quarter-finals at the European Championships in England in July 2022.
The German Football Association is eager to attack
Without ailing playmaker Dzsenifer Marozsan of US club OL Reign, the versatile Frankfurt Nüsken wore the No. 10. Along with Paris pro Sarah Dabritz and Munich pro Lina Magul, she heightened the aggressive game of her team. However, the hosts left many opportunities.
Clara Ball and Lena Oberdorf were in the starting line-up for the first time after a long injury hiatus. In the second half, experienced defensive coach Marina Hegering (all from Bayern Munich) returned. Substitute Melanie Leopols of Chelsea took over the captain’s armband and playmaker after the break.
Paul hit the crossbar first (57), before Schuller shined as a ready at 4-0 due to the Hoffenheim fire. At the next target, Wehrlwind set Schuller on fire. Joker cleared Eintracht Frankfurt and then scored their ninth goal in their 10th international match.
