Voss-Tecklenburg (Germany) after the victory against Les Bleues: “The final will be a footballing feast”

Martina Voss-Tecklenburg (Germany coach, qualified for the Euro final after their 2-1 victory against France in the semi-final): “It was an intense game. In the first period, we followed our plan of attack and observed the reaction of our opponent. They had chances, we kept our cool and we adapted to their game. It’s a well-deserved victory for the German team. […]

If this French team continues on this path, its future will be bright. Today this team lost against ours, but with a little more precision they could have taken the lead and it is not known how the game would have ended. (The final against England) will be a football feast! The English have been incredible, they have scored a lot of goals and have incredible confidence. But the first thirty minutes against Sweden in the semi-finals showed us their Achilles heel, we will try to exploit it on Sunday at Wembley in front of 90,000 fans, mostly English. »

Alexandra Popp (double goalscorer for Germany): “I think we showed what we are capable of, we showed the quality of our game. We had to demonstrate this power on the pitch, that’s what we showed tonight after working hard these last months. (On his double) I’m going to disappoint you but it’s the team that counts. If I don’t get the assists, I can’t score. I became dangerous again after being kept away for a long time by all these injuries. Winning the Golden Boot would be the icing on the cake, but the most important thing will be that my team wins, no matter who scores I will be happy. »
