For Lea Schüller, the national coach has now appointed Melissa Kössler from TSG Hoffenheim for the first time.

Merle Frohms will definitely be in goal in the first game, as the national coach had already announced. For the second game, the casting is still open. Almuth Schult, who has also been playing in league operations in the United States since this season, is also in discussion. « Almuth let us know that she wants to feel safe and fit enough when she plays. That’s why we haven’t assessed it conclusively yet, » the national coach said.

The opponents: a world-class team in upheaval

Above all, mentally, the USA bring enormous strength to the field. The players around Megan Rapinoe, who are great role models for young players like Jule Brand in particular, will also face Germany with a lot of confidence. “You need that mental stability to perform in the final. The United States can be a model for us in this regard,” says Voss-Tecklenburg. More recently, however, the United States lost to Spain and England and will want to catch up against Germany.
