    started this thread & hopefully we could keep it going for years to come(instead of switching to a new one after every year)

    it's revenge time! next Wednesday against Sweden. Looks like coach MVT is keeping the roster very similar to the one that beat England at Wembley last November. I would of liked to see HOF's Tabea Wassmuth on it though, she was burning up the Bundesliga from winger position -Cristiano style- until an injury put her out of action for about 4-5 games late fall(though she's back now). Surprise that Sandra Starke isn't on the list(as she actually started vs England in place of the then hurt, Svenya Huth) And missing sadly is Sarah Dabritz, out with an ACL till? Here's the Algarve Cup roster

    Kristin Demann , Vanessa Fischer, Maximiliane Rall, Carolin Simon, Sandra Starke and Tabea Waßmuth are standby players.
    We have still one Bundesliga matchday before the Algarve Cup to play which means changes in the roster due to injuries are not unlikely.

    MVT will have to let go of 3 players from her chosen 26 as I believe the Algarve Cup got a limit of 23 per team roster(or maybe that's been changed to 26?)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------btw; re visiting the successful lineup vs England
    England vs. Germany - 9 November 2019 - Women Soccerway

    it's obvious that it's going to be Huth in place of Starke, but who's going to replace Dabritz? Gor the feeling MVT going to go with her fav, the 18 year old Oberdorf(even though she's an CB st Essen) & then go with Gwinn instead of Hendrich(which in my book would be a mistake, but as mentioned MVT got her faves)

    I could only find the regulations from last year where only 23 players were allowed but according to Wiki Belgium has also nominated 26 players. Other teams have 22,23 or 24 players. I guess MVT will use all field players in this tournament and at least two goalkeepers.

    MVT said that she wants to play against Norway with 11 new players. This is based on an agreement with the Bundesliga clubs before the Algarve Cup.

    At the La Manga tournament the German U19 has won their first match against France 2:1. Goals by Sonja Merazguia (Hoffenheim) and Sophie Weidauer (Potsdam).

    Great win for Germany against Norway 4-0 while using their B squad. They’ll play in the finals. Still waiting for a relay on YouTube as well as their 1-0 revenge victory vs Sweden

    The finals of the Algarve Cup had to be cancelled after Italy was ordered back early due to Covid-19. Coach MVT used 11 new starters in each of the teo games played
    here was 'A' squad vs Sweden
    Germany vs. Sweden - 4 March 2020 - Women Soccerway
    the 'B' squad vs Norway
    Germany vs. Norway - 7 March 2020 - Women Soccerway

    obviously the Swedish game was more tight/difficult,, than Norway match was more free flowing. Germany controlled the first 75 min., but finally the Swedes were able to launch several attacks in the dying minutes. It was whole sale domination vs Norway, and the more shocking, is by a squad who might been played he first time ever together. I thought Dallmann, Elsig & Schuller looked particularly good in it, and really should be starters for the A squad.

    With these two victories Germany firmly stays at #2 in FIFA world rankings, bu still have to prove themselves if they can win an major summer tourney again(that's still a ways away(Euro 2021). They could challange the #1 US to a couple of friendlies, but to win, I do think MVT needs to stop playeing favorites; the youngsters she picks for the A squad; Oberdorf, Gwinn & Buhl, didn't look that good. As well as disappointing once again was Marozsan, who as usual, looked a step to slow.. So will she combined my faves form the B team(the ones I mentioned) with the A squad & beat the US? Well depends, while both in both games, Germany showed signs of being a quick, counter attacking team, it still wanted to play form the back, which obvious means so to be a more plotting, ball control style, which can make it very accessible to the usual strong/high press that the US specializes in
    Based on seeing the 2 Algarve Cup games, this would of been my starting lineup

    ........................................Benkarth
    Hendrich.............Doursoon..........Elsig...........Kleineheme

    Dallmann..........Leopolz...........Magull.............Buhl

    .......................Huth............Schuller

    Popp would be better suited agiasnt weaker teams, MVT faves Heggering, Oberdorf & Gwinn did not look good defensively vs Sweden/ or jusr saying vs the US you would want your quickest/most physical/most athletic players in there. One possible notable player that's missing is Tabea Wassmuth, the Hoffenheim winger, who could just be the fastest of them all!

    it's like there's two Maroszan's out there; one that plays for Lyon with stats like 10 goals/8 assists thus far in league season from her CAM spot....then there's the Marozsan that hasn't scored a goal in 2 & half years for the German NT even though she's the main, free kicker & PK taker. Could also add that's even vs 3rd tier Eastern Euro squads & tiny countries like the 50K, Faroe Islands. Dunno her assist record, but the German's tend to play inter-changeable positions style(where defenders become attackers). Germany's scored 38 goals in their last 7 games with just about eveybody else scoring(including CB's & FB's)

    more controversial is not including Alexandra Popp. As the usual central striker on the NT, she's got an dangerous header game & a wicked outside shot, but she's not an natural fwd(she plays outside mid for Wolfsburg). She's great vs opponents that bunker, but along with Maro, a tad to slow on counters.

    and then coach MVT definitely smitten with the 17 year old, Lena Oberdorf. Using her as an attacking CB, she’s started now nearly every game. That would defiantly be red flag vs the US. So yeah, I would envision a faster, more counter attacking/ more sound defensive lineup with my choices

    Marozsan played in none of Germany`s games against the Faroe Islands.
    She also has only shot three penalties:
    She scored in 2017 against Russia and Slovenia and missed in 2018 against Slovenia. The last penalties for Germany were shot by Popp and Däbritz.
