National coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg applauded her players, double goal scorer Jule Brand smiled contentedly: The German soccer players have hit the goal again after a strong rotation and are clearly on course for the World Cup.
With half a dozen fresh players in the starting line-up, the DFB team played like a substitute in qualifying in a 7-0 (4-0) win against Israel in Essen five days after the meager 1-0 in the first leg.
“We played a good game overall, we wanted to do better than in the first leg.
In terms of the goal rate, too, I think we did it.
It's cool when there are so many goal scorers, it was fun, ”said Laura Freilang.
Youngster Brand (20th / 45th), captain Sara Däbritz (26th), free time (42nd), Lina Magull (56th), Tabea Waßmuth (71st) and Felicitas Rauch (78th) met spectators in front of 1814, including DFB interim president Rainer Koch and director Oliver Bierhoff.
With a flawless score of twelve points and 20: 1 goals from four games, the German team consolidated their lead in Group H on the way to the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
Before the competitive games against Turkey and Portugal continue at the end of November, the focus is on Manchester.
There the European Championship 2022 in England (July 6th to 31st) will be drawn there on Thursday (6 p.m.).
Germany is in pot 1 with defending champions Netherlands and France, and the hosts are also the heads of Group A.
"We want to generate freshness", announced Voss-Tecklenburg and changed their initial formation significantly with a view to load management.
But even with new staff, patience was first required against the densely staggered Israeli defense bloc.
But that could be cracked better with more speed, precision and overview, some hits were played out worth seeing.
In the German double strike, the 19-year-old Brand only met after Däbritz had presented it, then the midfielder from Paris St. Germain added a slightly deflected low shot after great preparatory work from Freilang.
And then the preparer increased again, the Eintracht striker screwed her quota to eight goals in nine international matches.
And winger Brand from TSG Hoffenheim made things very clear with her second goal before the break.
After the break, the same picture: Israel was low, the hosts let the ball go.
With a nice volley hit, the strong Bayern captain Magull initiated the scoring in the second half.Keywords:
