Germany Women’s Euro 2022: They Have Talent Within Their Squad

  • The Women’s Euro 2022 is taking place in England between July 6 and July 31
  • Germany are by some distance the most successful team in the tournament’s history
  • They are also among the favorites this year but have been handed a tricky draw

The Women’s Euro 2022 gets under way on July 6 and Germany will hope to be present in the final on July 31. The eight-time winners of this tournament are not among the top three favorites this time around, but their vast experience could stand them in good stead in England.

Germany have a formidable track record in this competition. Twelve editions of the European Women’s Championship have been held up to now. No fewer than eight have been won by Germany. Their first success came on home soil in 1989, before further triumphs in 1991, 1995, 1997, 2001, 2005, 2009 and 2013.

To its credit, Germany started to take the women’s game seriously long before many of its continental rivals did. That is why the Nationalelf have been so successful on the European stage. They have also won the World Cup twice, in 2003 and 2007.

Germany Women’s Euro 2022

Germany are the fifth-favorites to win the Women’s Euro 2022 this summer. Their history of success in this competition must be daunting to their fellow competitors, and Germany’s experience and knowhow could prove integral this month. However, the Nationalelf are no longer the best team on the continent. Other sides have caught up with and perhaps even overtaken them in recent years.

We have seen evidence of that in recent tournaments. Germany won their group pretty comfortably at the last European Women’s Championship, held in the Netherlands five years ago, but they were then beaten by Denmark in the quarter-finals. They did not advance beyond the last eight of the most recent World Cup either, going down to Sweden in 2019.

Still, it would be unwise to write this Germany team off. They have talent within their squad and might actually relish not being one of the main favorites to lift the trophy.

Who Is the Germany Manager for Women’s Euro 2022?

Germany will be led at this tournament by Martina Voss-Tecklenburg, the former Switzerland manager who has been in her current job since 2018. Voss-Tecklenburg was a fine player herself, making 125 appearances for Germany and winning four European Women’s Championships.

As a coach, Voss-Tecklenburg won the Champions League with Duisburg 13 years ago. But after the disappointment of the 2019 Women’s World Cup, she is under pressure to do better this summer.

Who Will Germany Face at Women’s Euro 2022?

Group A Group B Group C Group D
England Germany Netherlands France
Austria Denmark Sweden Italy
Norway Spain Switzerland Belgium
Northern Ireland Finland Portugal Iceland

Germany will kick things off against Denmark in London on July 8. Their second match will also take place in the capital, as they lock horns with Spain four days later. Germany will conclude the group phase with a meeting with Finland in Milton Keynes on July 16.

If Germany reach the knockout phase, they will be paired with a team from Group A in the quarter-finals. A second-place finish in Group B would probably bring a tough game against England. If Germany wins their group, they are likely to face Norway in the last eight.

Have the Germany’s Women’s Team Won the Euros?

As mentioned above, Germany have won the European Women’s Championship eight times. The competition has been won just four times by every other side on the continent put together.

West Germany did not qualify for either of the first two editions of the Euros in 1984 and 1987. Between 1989 and 2013, they only failed to win the competition once, in 1993. That was a remarkable run of success which firmly established the Germans as the team to beat in Europe. The Nationalelf have never lost a final in this tournament’s history.

Which Germany Players Should I Look Out For?

The center-forward Lea Schuller will be Germany’s main threat. She is a natural goalscorer and possesses a fine record for her country, having found the back of the net 25 times in 39 appearances. The Bayern Munich frontwomen is the reigning Germany Player of the Year.

Look out, too, for Sara Dabritz. One of the few survivors from the triumphant squad that won this competition in 2013, the midfielder is a dynamic player who contributes in every phase of the game.

Wolfsburg forward Svenja Huth could also be a key contributor. She usually operates on the left, cutting infield onto her stronger right foot and taking shots at goal. Opposition right-backs will have their hands full in dealing with Huth.

What Time Is the Euro Final 2022?

The final of the Women’s Euro 2022 will take place on July 31, at Wembley Stadium in London. The match will kick off at 5pm local time, which is 12pm ET. Germany will hope to be involved in the showpiece event for a record-extending ninth time.
