Women's soccer: Unequal duel to the European throne

her gaze fell into the Void. The way, with Alexandra Popp chewed on her lips around, signaled deep frustration. "We have started late," said the Manager of VfL Wolfsburg during a press conference, which could make it not fun. To late Sunday evening and speak about how to explain the 1:3 defeat in the final of the Champions League was, was for Alexandra Popp bitter. Again, the Wolfsburg have failed on the inside of Olympique Lyon. Again, the question of how the dominance of the French master can be broken arises. The Wolfsburg interior, had begun in fact to late, brave and determined to seek your Chance. And you bother with the worry, if such a Chance comes so quickly back in view.

There were the usual cheers arias, who had to endure the team of the VfL Wolfsburg brave. A lot of Confetti, loud music, singing competitors: Since 2016, no one who wants to succeed is to push the women football players of Olympique Lyon from the European throne. Eugénie Le Sommer (25. Minute), Saki Kumagai (42.) and the former wolf she Sara Björk Gunnarsdottir (88.) shot the goals for the deserved winner. It's the time to goal from Alexandra Popp (57.) was created the impression, as it could be, but still exciting. "We have not managed our game to the front to push through," said Alexandra Popp. She was not hung up after the defeat in the final to be Trifled with.

champion apologizes

the type of the congratulations that were exchanged after the match in San Sebastián, had cheated a little Strange. "I'm sorry" – that should have said Gunnarsdottir those champion, which has played until recently for the VfL, with him on the way to the final tournament of the Champions League could help, before you then appeared as the antagonist in appearance. Ironically, the Lyon changed Icelander, had provided for the decision. It is up to the General Corona-mess the fault of that such a person had come with a strange game permission into the game. Gunnarsdottir is changed during the competition and was still eligible for the Lyon game. "I think it's pretty sad. But we have to accept that,“ said VfL captain Popp. But she was giving honest enough, that not only Gunnarsdottir had made the difference.

For the game tactical analysis of the next defeat against Lyon is at VfL Wolfsburg Stephan Lerch responsible. The head coach expressed pride in his Team. He attested to the soccer with a heart and not put the Finger deep into the wounds. The first two goals for Lyon's error in the Defensive had preceded it, the Lerch for the finals had changed. His idea to equip the four-man defensive chain, with Lena goessling and Anna pallor, was not rewarded. Its requirement to meet the high favorites first rather with a controlled Offensive, had not led to the desired result.
