Lea Schüller has preserved the German footballers in front of a false start to the EM year. At the Vienna Tournament in England, the scorer of Master Bayern Munich shot the replacement DFB selection in the 88th minute for late 1: 1 (0: 0) against the highly traded Spaniards, which at least partially build up.
The Spanish world footballer Alexia Putellas (46th) had used a Patzer of Defense Chef Lena Oberdorf to guide. For reunion, it comes in the summer at the euro, which takes place in England. On July 12, Spain is the second group opponent of the Recordenuropeister.
The Arnold Clark Cup continues for the DFB women on Sunday (21:15 pm / Defense Chefschau.de) against Olympic champion Canada in Norwich. On Wednesday (20.30 clock / ZDF.de) waits in Wolverhampton hosts England.
Germany lies good opportunities
Before the match in the Riverside Stadium of Middlesbrough, the national trainer Martina Voss-Tecklenburg had praised the Spanish selection as “currently the best team” and “benchmark in many areas”. Quite unlike Jorge Vilda, Voss-Tecklenburg had to compensate for the absence of 14 EM candidates due to injuries or Corona.
In a faded encounter, the DFB team developed with a lot of Spanish possession through good pressing and fast switching at the beginning more goal danger. The wingers Jule Brand (4.) and Klara Bühl (15th), however, gave the first occasions.
In the usual 4-3-3 basic order, the German selection then continued to push back to the rear and lost a few times the access. Lucia Garcia (34.) almost used such negligence.
Merked clarification action from Oberdorf
The fell immediately after the break, caused by a committed clarification action of the 20-year old Oberdorf (VfL Wolfsburg), which hit the ball only with the tibia in the penalty area. Putellas switched quickly and met with puppets over goalkeeper Merle Frohms into the gate.
After the residue, the DFB team was barely from one’s own half. After about 20 minutes, the Germans found again better in the game, according to the beautiful Bavaria combination about Maximiliane Rall and Schüller then missed Lina Magull from a short distance (72nd) the compensation.
It went back and forth: On the other side, Frohms directed a shot of Garcia (76th) to the crossbar – then Schüller met late to the rejuvenated compensation.
