Despite the strong rotation, the German soccer players managed to win a big win in the World Cup qualification.

With half a dozen fresh players in the starting eleven, the DFB-Elf played very dominantly in the 7-0 (4-0) against Israel five days after the narrow 1-0 in the first leg.

Youngster Jule Brand (20th minute of play, 45th), captain Sara Däbritz (26th), Laura Freilang (42nd), Lina Magull (56th), Tabea Waßmuth (71st) and Felicitas Rauch (78th) met before 1814 Spectators in Essen.

At halftime, the ARD expert and former national player Nia Künzer criticized, among other things, the kick-off time of the game at 4 p.m. “It is long time they were given the platform and visibility. The national team's games should be broadcast live - at a reasonable time, "said Künzer, who took her own broadcaster to the test:" We can't always just talk about the fact that women's football has to develop further. This includes a lot of actors, I have to mention the ARD. "

Again and again, the early kick-off times of the DFB women provoke criticism.

A later kick-off would make women's football more public.

“Of course you can argue about kick-off times, like here today.

There is huge potential that women's football and these women offer, «said Künzer.

In the first reactions on Twitter there was at least virtual applause from the women's department of FC Bayern, among others.

Moderator Claus Lufen almost looked a bit surprised: "Yeah, that's a statement," he said.

“I hope all those responsible will hear it.

Both on the association side and on the media side. "

The so-called association side was also present in Essen, including DFB interim president Rainer Koch and director Oliver Bierhoff.

They saw a significantly changed starting formation compared to the poor victory in the first leg.

Captain Däbritz with eight goals in nine games

But even with new staff, patience was first required against the densely staggered Israeli defense bloc.

But that could be better overplayed with more speed, precision and overview, some hits were preceded by combinations worth seeing.

In the German one-two, the 19-year-old Brand only met after Däbritz presented, then the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder followed up with a slightly deflected low shot after great preparatory work from Freilang.

And then the preparer increased again, Freilang increased her quota to eight goals in nine international matches.

TSG Hoffenheim's winger Brand rewarded her strong performance with her second goal before the break.

Then a similar picture: Israel was low, the hosts let the ball go.

With a volley hit, Bayern captain Magull initiated the scoring in the second half.

With twelve points and 20: 1 goals from four games, the German team consolidated their lead in Group H on the way to the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Before the competitive games against Turkey and Portugal continue at the end of November, the focus is on Manchester.

There, on Thursday, 6 p.m., the European Championship 2022 in England, which will take place from July 6th to 31st, will be drawn.

Germany is in pot one with defending champions Netherlands and France, and the hosts are also the heads of Group A.
