    A big loss although she declined a bit after her injury problems, would’ve been a much needed defensive midfielder for the team in France!

    Very unfortunate really. And kudos to Lena for bashing Steffi Jones :thumbsup:

    Gössling and Kessler were perhaps the best midfield duo :whistling:

    I will always cherish what she did for the national team and Wolfsburg. 2013 +2014 that duo was on fire. One of those...what could have been, if Kessler wasn`t forced to retire.

    What could’ve happened in WC 2015 for example with Kessler and Alushi available and no players struggling with injuries like Popp, Marozsan and Gössling :unsure:

    That`s sports. You never know what can happen. We will see what the future brings. I wouldn`t mind a future world cup final: Gwinn for the win :cool:

    Do you think she was that great though to earn «young player of the tournament»? or is it just me

    Not really, but I don`t know who the competing young players are. With Fifa name recognition is everything. To me, Oberdorf will be much more important in the future.

    I hope she developes into a box to box midfielder. She’s got everything to own the midfield - and hopefully the mentality as well

    looks like germany has a game planned with England at Wembley in nov
    England to face Germany at Wembley

    Germany's group & games to be played for Euro qualifiers. looks like Ukraine & Ireland will be their toughest opponents
    Summary - UEFA Women's Championship - Europe - Results, fixtures, tables and news - Women Soccerway

    you got to curse to halfway down, but dead on perspective on Germany's run in the WC
    2019 Women’s World Cup – Exit Reports: Italy & Germany | All White Kit

    a few other notes; read from somebody in the DBF, MVT wouldn't be sacked cua they had such a hard time getting her in the first place.

    can't find a link again, but based on how many either domestic or international players we're in the WC from the top leagues of the world, the Bundesliga only came in 5th

    these were the totals;

    1) NWSL(US)..................73 players
    2) WPL(England).............57
    3) Primera(Spain)............51
    4) Femine(France)..........50
    5) Bundesliga..................34

    take that though with a grainof salt as the Dutch proved very successful even though they got a relatively weak league with none of their starters playing in it

    Germany lost to France, 1-2, in the u19 Euro finals/ They still looked pretty good, hitting twice the woodwork


    France came in with a lot more experience, having 4 players that got passed the 1000 minute mark(playing time) in FF1(1st div) play last season, compared to Anyomi with 635. Missing from the German side were Oberdorf, Buhl, Lohmann, Stozel. Weakish goalkeeping hurt their chances as well. This supposedly was coach Meinert's last game., so maybe the next one will get the best players available, instead of developing newbies(as lately Meinert's been doing).
    While still using the standard(dbf manual), 4-2-3-1, seemed like the players had more freedom to dribble drive, rather than the more disciplined/short passing. And then there was the one goal vs NED via a long ball/fast break(possibly the 1st one in German history? lol)
    But still got to wonder why Meinert didn't want start the deadlier goal scorer, Martinez, alongside the athletic, Anyomi. which would of given them way more firepower upfront.

    Germany qualifies for next year's the u20 WC

    The new squad is out and it’s pretty much identical... :whistling:

    I think they should’ve brought Gasper and Pawollek to the senior team now

    Never been so little excited about the German WNT as I am right now :p

    at least Heggering didn't get picked(though she might be injured), Leupolz is as well out on injury. Euro qualifiers aren't as dramatic as WC ones as double the teams will make it through, but it's still a rather interesting group; Ukraine got a victory over Sweden an year ago, plus stunningly, Maren Meinert has become the head coach of Ireland(was this suppose to be a slap to the DFB?)

    hopefully, that sleeping giant of German broso fans will take an interest to all of this(or at least someone needs to tell them that their men's team isn't even ranked in the top ten anymore!(whereas the ladies are still #2)

    it be hard to pay attention to the Buli now that the dfb website don't stream live games anymore(Eurosport is geo blocked for me) but despite a weker league, the NT still looks promising for the future; the youth came in a close 2nd in the recent u19 Euros. And that's despite not having Oberdorf & Buhl (as compared to France & Spain who had their best)

    but yeah. whether its an experienced or non experienced one(MVT or Stefi), nothing looses interests more than these coaches turning their squads into their own personal vanity projects!

    Germany has come out like gang busters for Euro qualifiers, easily destroying both opponents, the Ukraine score is especially surprising considering they upset Sweden at home at last year's WC qualifiers. MVT's 'total futbol' concept was especially in display as it was really hard to figure what positions her inter-changable players were supposed to be at. Her favoritism for certain players as well as now she started Oberdorf at CB, Buhl as FB
