Women's Football National Team: A Quantum Pep


SThey want to go their own way, the German football women. And so they tend to sound softer sounds before the start of the Football World Cup mission this summer. At the two-time world champion and current Olympic champion, there are not too lukewarm hashtags, as most recently with the men with #BestNeverRest. Instead, the German women venture out of cover only with a not to be refuted fact and a peppy commercial of a longtime partner.

"We do not need eggs, we have ponytails," is the slogan used by a bank to promote the best German women footballers in the coming weeks until the Women's World Cup in France, which starts on 7 June. The statement refers to Oliver Kahn's well-known rage of 2003 in a crisis of his club Bayern Munich. In the spot, captain Alexandra Popp or Dzsenifer Marozsan also flirt with their low profile or widespread prejudices, and in the end, they just want them to be played.

This may now be starting with the opening match against China on June 8, 23 players – so big in any case, the squad – whose name coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg on Tuesday in Frankfurt announced. Larger surprises were left before the less than a week long preparatory course in Grassau with a last World Cup test against Chile in Regensburg on 30 May. Martina Voss-Tecklenburg nominated five "backup players" in the event of injury-related failures.

Trainer Martina Voss-Tecklenburg chooses the classic way: "We want to give answers on the pitch."

Already at the beginning of the week of preparation at Chiemsee, however, there will be a question mark behind goalkeeper Almuth Schult. The final wife of VfL Wolfsburg has suffered a shoulder injury in the final stages of the Bundesliga season and had to suspend the last match of the season against the team of Potsdam. "We will have to decide in Grassau," said Martina Voss-Tecklenburg. "The injury may no longer play a role, so that they can perform one hundred percent." From the rules, the coach would have up to 24 hours before the start of the first German game the opportunity to exchange injured players with medical evidence.

From Wolfsburg it can be heard that Schult is in good spirits regarding a timely recovery. The final woman, one of only three players from the squad of the series champion but also with international stars VfL Wolfsburg in the World Cup squad, had recently swung by an interview in this newspaper spokesman in the German team. The 28-year-old Almuth Schult had criticized the poor marketing of women's football in the DFB and in the Bundesliga and, for example, also complained about the declining rewards of the national team players in missions for the national team. To what extent the criticism now has effects for the World Cup premiums, has yet to show.

The negotiations are apparently only completed in the preparatory camp. Notable sums of money, however, will only flow if the 2016 Olympic champion qualifies as one of three European teams for the Olympic football tournament in Japan in the coming year, which is set as a minimum target for the team. "In the face of strong European competition we have to reach the quarter-finals, maybe even the semi-final," said Martina Voss-Tecklenburg.
