Highly motivated, the German footballers go to the game against Olympic champion Canada on Sunday (21:15 o’clock / ARD-Livestream) at the Arnold Clark Cup.
“We are full of anticipation,” said Bundestrainer Martina Voss-Tecklenburg before the game in English Norwich. “We play against the Olympic champion. They played (in the first match against England) 1: 1 and shown what they have for a good spirit.”
According to their somewhat lucky draw against Spain (1: 1), the Germans want to increase in the second game mainly in midfield. For the kick-off of the four-nation tournament, DFB women had largely provided the Spaniards.
“It was not so easy to accept that for us,” said Routinier Lena Magull. “You are not used to so little, that was honestly, a bit frustrating.”
However, the team tapered due to numerous failures, but Magull and Voss-Tecklenburg are safe, and wants to make it better against Canada. “We have already taken a lot from the Spain game,” emphasized the national trainer, “where we can be even more aggressive, even more alert – and offensive even more consistent and maybe a little more precision in our game.”
