Turkey has no chance in World Cup qualification
DFB women work hard to win
On the way to a successful World Cup qualification, the DFB selection keeps its perfect balance. In the fifth game there is the fifth win. Opponents Turkey are clearly inferior from start to finish. This can also be seen in the result of the penultimate international match in 2021.
Led by the outstanding Lea Schüller, the German soccer players continued their march through in the World Cup qualification. Bayern Munich’s goalscorer not only scored a three-pack in the 8-0 (3-0) against Turkey, which was hopelessly overwhelmed in the end (10/11/67). A lightning own goal forced by Schüller after 46 seconds by Kezban day (1st) had initiated the sovereign mandatory victory in the last home game of the year in front of 2538 spectators in Braunschweig. In addition, the 24-year-old put on the 4-0 through Jule Brand (62nd), then the Eintracht duo met Laura Freilang (74th) and Sjoeke Nüsken (80th). Shortly before the end, Klara Bühl (88.)
With a maximum of 15 points from five games, the DFB team successfully defended their lead in Group H. On Tuesday (7 p.m. / zdf.de) there will be a duel with pursuers Portugal (13 points) at the end of the year in Faro. Only the group winners will qualify directly for the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
Frohms has little to do in the cold
National coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg relied again on the recently proven 4-3-3 basic order. At headquarters, Nüsken replaced the sick Dzsenifer Marozsan, after injuries Bühl on the left wing and central defender Lena Oberdorf returned to the starting line-up. The DFB team set the tone with its pace and got off to a perfect start: Defender Tag, as a guard of Schüller, steered a cross from Sara Däbritz into her own goal. Then Schüller hit with his head and with a rotary shot.
National goalkeeper Merle Frohms spent a quiet working day in the freezing cold and only had to intervene in the 33rd minute. The Eintracht Frankfurt goalkeeper steered a dangerous free kick from Berna Yeniceri over the crossbar. In the second half, the hosts remained dominant and mostly came dangerously over the wings in front of the Turkish goal. Bühl (57th) shot at the crossbar, then the quick-witted Schüller served the substitute Brand with a clever cross pass.
The 19-year-old Brand (TSG Hoffenheim) returned the favor five minutes later at Schüller, who scored her 22nd goal in the 33rd international match from close range. The Eintracht striker Freiang, who came on for Schüller shortly afterwards, also met after preliminary work by fire, and Nüsken added a powerful header. Bühl increased with a free kick.
