DrThe little word “finally” you didn’t say, but you can think of it well. Monica Voss-Tecklenburg confirmed that “something big is coming at the end of the season”. And you can clearly see how much fun this new professional perspective gives her. After two summers without tournaments, the European Championship 2022 in England is no longer a long-term goal, but it is on the horizon. The themes in the German women’s national soccer team must change. Away from trial rotation and as much play time as possible for everyone, away from focusing on stress management for busy club players.
Towards a selection generates a regular team that can end the lean years of the German national team in England. “The competition is on,” says Voss-Tecklenburg. She doesn’t think much of the term first team because we need more than eleven players per tournament, but she does aim to have a group of seven to eight regular players in the .
Ahead of the tournament in England, the country where women’s football is currently developing the fastest, the DFB selection schedule set the 2023 World Cup qualifying round in Australia and New Zealand. Introduction This is two home games, you should provide the national coach with more knowledge than the spectators. Because international second-tier competitors in Bulgaria on Saturday (4:05 pm, live on ARD) in Cottbus and Serbia on Tuesday (4:00 pm) in Chemnitz will likely be on their way to damage the limit with a devastating defensive tactic. . Voss-Tecklenburg has already elevated both games to mandatory victories.
But this does not mean that the “how” is out of focus. “Our focus is on playing with determination, accuracy and speed. “Recently we have had a deficit,” says the national coach. It clearly wants to “shape” the World Cup qualifiers in light of the other group’s opponents Portugal, Israel and Turkey. The tournament, which includes three other competitors, should offer more useful tests with the aim of the European Championship in February. The 53-year-old Vos Tecklenburg will be opposed to the fact that in addition to the Wolfsburg and Munich players, Hoffenheim players can now also gain international experience at club level in the revamped Champions League. The three German clubs reached the group stage.
Double exposure documentary
The long-term loss of captain Alexandra Pope is a bit worrying, as it draws attention to the fact that there are no other top-tier players in the middle of the storm besides the Wolfsburg striker. Most likely Leah Schuler, who scores reliably in the Bundesliga for Bayern, but also shows limitations against strong opponents. Frankfurt’s Laura Frelange has developed quite a bit lately, but has only made seven internationals. French Legionnaire Lena Petermann is back in the team after a long hiatus. This also applies to the technically best German player Dzsenifer Marozsan. The 29-year-old from Olympique Lyonnais, the Champions League winner, had missed recent sessions as she was still in a class abroad at Lyon’s NBA partner OL Reign through the end of the year.
Marozan will also register the new faces in the entourage of the German Federation. The film team has been accompanying the German team since April. A six-part documentary series will be produced, which not only wants to showcase the lives of heroes as footballers, but also wants to show how players deal with the double burden of studying, school, working or being a mother (goalkeeper Almut Schulte). “We are thrilled with the great project and can show who we are with it,” says Martina Voss-Tecklenburg.
With the final word from the players and the association in the images shown at the end, it remains to be seen where the documentary will be sorted. Whether it will show original interior views or whether it is another football film that mainly meets the requirements of soft marketing. In any case, making women’s football more visible off the scene and better marketed remains a major problem. “We have nothing to hide. We want to show we are great,” says the national coach. A successful EM with long unseen cheers should contribute to the success of the film project.
