The EM dress rehearsal of the German soccer women was successful. The team with triple goal scorer Klara Bühl plays strong.
After the convincing dress rehearsal for the European Championship, the German women’s soccer team around triple goal scorer Klara Bühl gathered in the cheering circle, where national coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg sworn them in for the final round immediately after the final whistle.
With the sweeping goals gala at the 7-0 (2-0) in the last endurance test against Switzerland, the DFB selection in front of 5918 spectators in Erfurt quietly awakened dreams of medals for the European Championship from July 6th to 31st in England. “We have secured ourselves in many things. It is our aim to be among the favorites at the European Championship. We see the potential to play for the title,” said Voss-Tecklenburg.
“We are on the right path”
In addition to Bühl, who scored in the 6th, 61st and 66th minute, Lina Magull (41st), Linda Dallmann (81st), Jule Brand (89th) and Sydney Lohmann (90th + 5) steered the other goals for the German team, which is superior in all respects. She is now flying with a lot of tailwind to the European Championship tournament, in which Denmark, Spain and Finland are the opponents in the preliminary round. “It’s super good to play a game like that. It gives us confidence and shows us that we’re on the right track. That’s the way it should go,” said Bühl on ZDF.
The DFB team, in which captain Alexandra Popp made her comeback in the final phase after surviving the corona infection, will continue its preparations for the European Championship until next Wednesday at the training camp in Herzogenaurach and will then travel to the island on July 3 with a lot of self-confidence . “The players feel good,” confirmed Voss-Tecklenburg.
The DFB women controlled the game
The DFB team got off to a good start against the Swiss, who the national coach looked after from 2012 to 2018. After a fine pass from Magull, Bühl headed all alone towards the Swiss goalkeeper Gaelle Thalmann and successfully completed the early lead. That gave additional security. The German team controlled the game and was hardly challenged defensively.
Shortly before the break, Voss-Tecklenburg’s protégés were rewarded for their constant efforts. This time Bühl hung up after a fine solo for Magull, who scored from close range to make it 2-0. “The first half was pretty good too. During the break we addressed things that we wanted to implement. And that worked out very well,” said Bühl.
Two late goals in the closing stages
In fact, the German team continued to have everything under control. Svenja Huth (54th) initially missed the 3-0 when she failed to free-standing against Thalmann. But Bühl aimed better a little later – albeit unintentionally. A cross from the Bayern striker from the left wing hit the far corner.
Once up and running, the 21-year-old followed suit just five minutes later. After a shot by Lea Schüller, Bühl was in the right place and put the ball into the empty goal. When she was substituted almost 20 minutes before the end, the triple scorer was greeted with great applause. The DFB women didn’t let up in the closing stages either and scored two late goals.
