Status: 10/26/2021 6:03 p.m.

With a convincing performance, the German soccer players clearly defeated the team from Israel in the World Cup qualification. The DFB team delighted the fans in Essen with many goals. In the end it was 7-0 (4-0) for Germany.

It was the fourth victory in the fourth game for the team of trainer Martina Voss-Tecklenburg in this qualification round. The scoring was spread across six shooters: Jule Brand met twice before the break (20th minute / 45th) on Tuesday (October 26th, 2021).

Künzer: “Take something away”

In addition, Sara Dräbitz (26th), Laura Freilang (42nd), Lina Magull (56th), Tabea Waßmuth (71st) and Felicitas Rauch (78th) entered the list of goalscorers. “The fact that the goals are distributed among so many players is a great aspect,” said ARD expert Nia Künzer.

You can take something away from this game, said Künzer, “for example, that you can crack defensive teams playfully.”

Five days ago in Israel, the German team had found it even more difficult tormented themselves to an arduous 1-0 victory. “The way the team dealt with the criticism of the first leg and tried to do better was very satisfactory,” said national coach Voss-tecklenburg after the game.

Goal scorer Freilang was also completely happy: “Overall, we played a good game. We played a little more precisely, were more enthusiastic about the game, created more chances to score. I think it’s cool when there are so many goalscorers,” she said.

Flawless record

With the peat festival, the 2016 Olympic champion extended his lead in Group H on the way to the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand to a flawless twelve points and 20: 1 goals.

At the early kick-off time at 4:05 p.m., the host team had to be content with a very modest backdrop. With a lot of pressure, especially from Svenja Huth from Wolfsburg on the right, the DFB-Elf started against another very defensive team from Israel around Sharon Beck from 1. FC Cologne. The youngest player opened the scoring: the 19-year-old Brand used a pass from the strong Däbritz to her second goal in the DFB jersey and later added another.

Six new starters

Also because of the multiple loads, especially for players from Champions League clubs, Voss-Tecklenburg had changed the starting line-up to six positions compared to last week. Among other things, clearance stormed for the striker Lea Schüller (FC Bayern) and promptly put on the 2-0 through Däbritz before she scored herself.

US professional and playmaker Dzsenifer Marozsan sat on the bench for an hour this time and saw Däbritz, Lina Magull and Chelsea player Melanie Leupolz dominate the midfield. Magull then increased to 5-0 shortly after the break. Schüller, who comes from the talent factory of SGS Essen, was then allowed to play, but remained without a goal.

Now against Turkey and Portugal

The Germans had already celebrated a clear 7-0 in this World Cup qualification against Bulgaria at the start.

The next qualifying matches are against Turkey and Portugal at the end of November. First, however, the record European champion will find out his opponents for the EM 2022 in England (6th to 31st July) during the draw on Thursday (6 p.m.).
