FIFA Women’s World Cup team guide: Germany

FIFA Women’s World Cup team guide: Germany

Germany was no longer viewed as the favorite after losing in the quarterfinals of the 2017 European Championship and the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, but that changed at Euro 2022. After Bayern Munich released their five chosen players three days later than originally planned, there were issues prior to this summer’s training camp. Martina Voss-Tecklenburg acknowledged that Germany did not always win the warm-up games.

The German supporters are also confident since they got overexcited when their team made the final and nearly won the Euros last year. Nearly 18 million viewers watched the championship match on ARD; fewer people watched Germany’s men’s group-stage games in Qatar in 2016. Voss-Tecklenburg said she wants the team to be adaptable, but she will likely stick with her favored 4-3-3 formation. She has demonstrated her ability to find an XI that functions well together. Something Hansi Flick is unable to achieve with the men.

The Manager

Martina Voss-Tecklenburg scored an own goal in the 89th minute of one of her final games as a player in 2003 to determine the German Cup final. It was the first goal she had ever scored into her own net in her illustrious career, during which she was twice named Germany’s player of the year and four times crowned European champion. At the men’s World Cup in Qatar, she served as an expert for ZDF. Many were dubious following the quarterfinal defeat at the 2019 World Cup, but since the European Championship in England, there has never been more faith in Voss-Tecklenburg, who is considered as a terrific motivator.

Star player 

Alexandra Popp is without a doubt the most well-liked member of the Germany FIFA Women’s World Cup team. She does have a sense of humor, which helps. Additionally, Popp—an honest worker—always goes above and above. However, the 32-year-old’s football skills should also not be underrated. She frequently scores goals that you are unable to explain. Popp recorded a goal till the final of the European Championship, which she critically missed due to injury. After that, she for the first time held the top-scoring position in the Bundesliga.

Rising star

The German squad includes some young players who play significant roles. One of the top midfielders in the world at age 21, Lena Oberdorf. Left winger Klara Bühl, who is also only 22 years old, plays. Jule Brand could also be useful in the situation. There is no denying that she possesses unique talents due to her excellent technique and dribbling skills. Really, all we’re doing is waiting for her to get her major breakthrough. Perhaps she will make a breakthrough in the World Cup.

Fun Fact

Melanie Leupolz will bring her infant son to Australia after missing the European Championship last summer due to pregnancy. Leupolz and Leupolz Jr. will have a place to stay, and a nanny will also be traveling with her.

State of Football 

Voss-Tecklenburg, who played up front on that squad, some of it is still there. The old head-shaking is now exploited in marketing by the new primary sponsor, who makes kitchen and cleaning machines. In Germany, interest in the men’s national team is waning while it is increasing in enthusiasm for the women’s national team.

Our Prediction

With matches against Colombia, Morocco, and South Korea, Germany is by much the favorite and should take first place in Group H. The coaching staff and players have been claiming during the buildup that they believe they can defeat anyone. However, Germany knows that the tournament may end very fast and will likely face Brazil or France in the round of 16.
