“The American women set the tone at this moment,” says Wiegman. “I think we have quite a lot of players have that are of the same caliber or even better. But they can ninety minutes the gas, and rams. We are going to the world CHAMPIONSHIPS, more of these ‘fighting machines’ to take.”

“If you down want to play football, you should absolutely be fine. At times, we are also a fighting machine, but we can distinguish ourselves by positional game at the highest level to play and so under pressure to play football. That still needs to act faster, have better coordination and more skills than the EK. That is our challenge.”
