Dresden (AFP) – National coach Martina Voss Tecklenburg expressed her dissatisfaction with the upcoming international trip to the USA in November after the German soccer team’s 2-1 win over France.
“The deciding factor is that we have a contractual commitment that goes back a long time,” the 54-year-old said Friday evening in Dresden. “We still owe it to the United States. I wouldn’t be upset if we had a different deal. We’ve tried everything, and we’ve had a lot of talks, including at the highest levels.” The background to her concerns is the intense pressure, especially on several of her players from VfL Wolfsburg and FC Bayern Munich in the Champions League group stage.
The runners-up challenged the two-time European champions from the United States in the year-end International Match Test: on November 11 (1:00 a.m. CET) in Fort Lauderdale/Florida and on November 13 in Harrison/NJ (1:00 p.m. CST) Europe).
Meanwhile, Voss-Tecklenburg appreciates the analogy with an entirely large team with a vision of the World Cup from July 20 to August 20, 2023 in Australia and New Zealand. She had previously said: “The matches against the United States – then in the country of the world champion, where women’s football is so important – are always very special.” Now we will do everything we can and “do everything we can to ensure our players stay healthy”.
