The final international fixture for the Germany women’s national team before they travel to the European Championships in England will take place in Erfurt. Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s side will face Switzerland at the Steigerwaldstadion on Friday, June 24 (17:00h CEST). For Voss-Tecklenburg, it is a reunion with a former side – she worked as head coach of the Swiss women’s national team for more than seven years before joining the DFB-Frauen.
The head coach said, “It’s a special occasion for me to be facing Switzerland for the first time as Germany head coach, for sure. My years there allowed me to grow and develop, not only as a coach but also as a person. For the team, it will be the last chance for us to test ourselves against a fellow EUROs participant ahead of the tournament itself. Switzerland are a side who have consistently developed and improved on all levels over the last few years.”
The squad will start their work ahead of Women’s EURO 2022 with a “Pre-Camp” in Frankfurt from the June 5 to 9, where due to various players taking part in club competitions including the Champions League, league seasons and the final of the DFB-Pokal, only a portion of the squad will take part. The first pre-tournament training camp will take place at the adidas “World of Sports” in Herzogenaurach, near Nürnberg, between the June 12 to 18, with the second camp taking place at the same location from June 21 to 29. The team will travel to England for the European Championships on July 3.
The squad for the preparation ahead of Women’s EURO 2022 is expected to be named after the final of the women’s DFB-Pokal in Köln on May 31.
