The German national team was challenged in the penultimate game of the season in France. But in the test match, the DFB women had to accept a remarkable goal.
While the men are close to the start of the European Championship, the DFB women were also in action. National coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg met France with her team. But against good French women who impressed offensively with good individual quality and defensively with good team performance, there was only one defeat.
Voss-Tecklenburg relied on many young players to compensate for the many failures. Sara Däbritz, Marina Hegering, Sara Doorsoun, Melanie Leupolz, Lina Magull, Alexandra Popp, Kathrin Hendrich, Lena Petermann, Pauline Bremer, Giulia Gwinn and Dzsenifer Marozsan were not there.
Nevertheless, Germany played bravely and had a few chances, but the win deservedly went to France.
That’s how the game went

78. Minute – And she works diligently backwards too! The German corner brings nothing, except for a French counterattack. Brand sprints backwards and actually runs the ball.

54. Minute – That could have been 1: 1, if not even had to. Klara Bühl prevails, brings her pace well into the attack and then puts the ball across to Linda Dallmann. Dallmann prevails against her first opponent with a hook, but her degree is just blocked.
