Two time champions Germany will look to win yet another Women’s World Cup when they travel to Oceania this month.

Germany will be hoping to re-create their 2003 and 2007 winning campaigns, having failing to make the final in each of the last three tournaments.

They topped their qualifying group ahead of rivals Portugal, taking 27 points out of a possible 30, with their only defeat coming at the hands of Serbia. After their impressive qualifying performances and a near perfect Euro 2022, Die Nationalef will be full of confidence going into the tournament and may even get revenge on England, if things go their way.

Germany players to watch at this year’s Women’s World Cup

Germany World Cup Golden Boot contender – Alexandra Popp

Having scored 62 times in 128 caps for Germany, Alexandra Popp will be looking to add the icing on the cake to a superb international career and add a Golden Boot to her trophy cabinet. The 32-year-old has been in fine form for Wolfsburg this season, scoring 16 times as well as providing five assists in her 21 league appearances, finishing as the Bundesliga top goalscorer for the first time in her career. She also scored and assisted in the UWCL semi-final against Arsenal to help her side reach the final.

After missing the Euro 2022 final through injury, she will be determined to make her name for herself at the World Cup and what better way to do it than bring home the trophy and the Golden Boot for her country.

Germany player to watch – Lena Oberdorf

Wolfsburg midfielder Lena Oberdorf is one of the stars of this German side, with her superb passing range, calmness on the ball and her willingness to win the ball back, helping her to become nearly the complete midfielder at just 21 years old.

She was named in the FIFPRO Women’s World XI at the Best FIFA awards and will be looking to impress once more on the world stage. She has won 38 caps so far, scoring three goals and even at such a young is already one of the first names on Voss-Tecklenburg’s team sheet. 

Germany emerging player to look out for – Jule Brand

Despite appearing over 30 times for Germany, Jule Brand is still the second youngest in this German squad and has a huge career in front of her.

Named as the 2022 Best European Golden Girl, she will be looking to impress for the national side despite not having the season she would have wanted at Wolfsburg this term. She did manage three goals and four assists in just 11 starts however and given the chance, will not let the occasion get the better of her.

Germany tactical analysis & formation at the World Cup

Voss-Tecklenburg tends to set her side in an attacking 4-3-3 formation, looking to press their opposition at every given opportunity and win back the ball as high up the pitch as possible. The German’s aggressive, attacking style of football has been incredibly successful for them in recent months and years, especially at Euro 2022, where they reached the final. 

Alexandra Popp has been playing slightly deeper recently, so don’t be surprised if she falls back, just like Harry Kane has been at Spurs. There is a dilemma at right-back, with Carolin Simon suffering an ACL injury in the friendly defeat to Zambia, meaning Voss-Tecklenburg has a decision to make. Will she play Svenja Huth there, out of position, or shift one of Sara Doorsoun or Sophia Kleinherne over from centre-back to the right.

Germany are currently second in the FIFA world rankings, just behind USA.

Who is the Germany manager?

Martina Voss-Tecklenburg is the manager of the Germany and has been in charge since 2019.

How many times have Germany won the World Cup?

How many times have Germany competed in the World Cup?

This will be Germany’s ninth appearance at the Women’s World Cup, having been involved at every tournament so far – one of eight nations to be ever-present.

Who has scored Germany’s most goals in World Cup tournaments?

Birgit Prinz is the Germany’s top scorer at World Cups, netting 14 times across four tournaments from 1995 to 2007. She also holds the record for most goals scored at a single World Cup for her country, scoring seven times in 2003.
