DFB women are fighting to take part in the Olympics

The DFB women missed their first chance to take part in the Olympics in the summer with a 1-2 defeat in the semi-finals of the Nations League against France.

Captain Alexandra Popp took her team to task before the German footballers' important international match against the Netherlands in Heerenveen.

“We know what it's about.

It’s not just about qualifying for the Olympics, it’s about saving your own face,” said the 32-year-old from VfL Wolfsburg at the final press conference. 

Missing out on taking part in the summer games would be another serious setback for the German Football Association six months after the World Cup debacle in Australia with the elimination in the preliminary round.

“To put it bluntly, we’re already used to it.

Every game is fraught with pressure,” said Popp, who won Olympic gold in Rio in 2016, emphasizing: “We just want to put it on the record tomorrow, we have to put it on the record.” 

DFB women in the Netherlands under pressure

“You know that home games always feel nicer with many, many fans behind you.

But it shouldn’t affect us,” said Germany’s “Footballer of the Year.”

“We just have to learn that: how to deal with it when 20,000, 25,000 are against you.”

According to Hrubesch, all players are fit.

“We shook each other once, shook each other again yesterday.

Now we have prepared ourselves for tomorrow's game," said the 72-year-old, whose term of office would end immediately if he missed participation in Paris.
