German Women National team lost against the US Women National team
The German side was the better team. But they missed too many goal opportunities and got punished by Abby Wambach. But that’s the game.
The European Champion dominated the game, especially at the beginning against the very fit looking US National team. Germany’s wing players put a lot of pressure on the US Defence. Coach Silvia Neid‘s team had a lot of goal opportunities but didn’t finish accurate enough. The crowd (28.367 – sold out) saw a good first half by the German side in the Augsburger Impuls Arena.
But Abby Wambach scored out of nowhere the 0:1 lead for the girls from the USA. Germans goalie Nadine Angerer didn’t look too good. After the goal, Germany kept attacking. But the American side adapted to the German game. They even had a chance in the 76. Minute by Wambach. But she got pushed from behind, but the referee from Hungary didn’t call a penalty. The European Champion lost their strength and the US side finished confident.
It was a good game with a lot of speed. The German crowd was very happy about the performance of both teams.
