September 22, 2015 - Alexandra Popp scores in 1-0 win over Croatia
"Die deutsche Frauen-Fußballnationalmannschaft schrammt in der EM-Qualifikation knapp an einer Blamage vorbei. In Kroatien reicht es nur zu einem knappen Erfolg. Alexandra Popp hat die deutschen Fußballerinnen vor einer Blamage auf dem Balkan bewahrt. Nach dem Schützenfest zum Auftakt gegen Ungarn (12:0) gewann der erschreckend schwache EM-Titelverteidiger durch den abseitsverdächtigen Treffer der Angreiferin in der Anfangsphase mit 1:0 (1:0) im zweiten EM-Qualifikationsspiel in Kroatien." - Sport1

June 26, 2015 - Germany advances on penalty kicks over France
"Captain Nadine Angerer was Germany's shootout heroine as they booked a semi-final spot at Canada 2015, following an enthralling 120 minutes in Montreal which finished 1-1. Louisa Necib's goal looked set to hand France a second consecutive FIFA Women's World Cup semi-final in normal time, but Celia Sasic's late spot-kick sent the game to extra-time and, ultimately, penalties.... It was Necib, France's brightest player by far, who eventually broke the deadlock, albeit with some inadvertent assistance from the German defence. Babett Peter's headed clearance from a long Jessica Houara ball fell straight to France's No14 and, in trying to atone for her error, Peter could only deflect Necib's effort past Angerer to give Les Bleues the lead. There was to be late drama though, with Amel Majri adjudged to have handled Maier's left-footed cross in the French penalty area in the closing stages. Sasic stepped up and, despite the enormous pressure on her shoulders, calmly sent Bouhaddi the wrong way by slotting the ball into the bottom left-hand corner. Extra-time was a tense and terse affair, with substitute Gaetane Thiney wasting a glorious late chance to put her side into the last four, her miss meaning the drama would go all the way to a penalty shootout. After nine perfect penalties, 20-year-old substitute Claire Lavogez saw her penalty saved by the Germany No1, and the skipper celebrated with gusto." - FIFA

June 20, 2015 - Celia Sasic scores brace in win over Sweden
"Celia Sasic scored twice in helping top-ranked Germany advance to the Women's World Cup quarterfinals with 4-1 win over Sweden on Saturday. Anja Mittag, named the player of the match, opened the scoring in the 24th minute, and Dzsenifer Marozsan scored in the 88th minute as Germany eliminated Sweden in the Round of 16 game played in Ottawa. Germany had built a 3-0 lead before Linda Sembrant scored on a header off Therese Sjogran's free kick from outside the box in the 82nd minute. The Swedes nearly cut the margin to 3-2 a minute later, when Sofia Jakobsson broke in alone. However, Jakobsson was stopped by goalie Nadine Angerer, who came out of the crease to cut the angle." - AP

June 15, 2015 - Lena Petermann scores brace in win over Thailand
"Lena Petermann scored twice in three minutes and top-ranked Germany trounced Thailand 4-0 Monday to advance to the round of 16 in the Women's World Cup. Melanie Leupolz put Germany ahead 1-0 in the 24th minute by heading in a corner kick. The 29th-ranked Thais hung within a goal behind a brilliant performance from keeper Waraporn Boonsing. But the Germans finally made it 2-0 on Petermann's header in the 56th minute - a feat she repeated two minutes later. Sara Daebritz later closed the scoring by tapping the ball into an open net." - Bangkok Post

June 7, 2015 - Celia Sasic & Anja Mittag each score hat-tricks in win over Ivory Coast
"Germany began their bid to regain the Women's World Cup by putting 10 past Ivory Coast in Ottawa. Celia Sasic scored a hat-trick and Anja Mittag netted twice as Germany were 5-0 up inside 35 minutes. Mittag completed her treble after the break, with Simone Laudehr, Sara Dabritz, Melanie Behringer and Alexandra Popp all finding the net. Germany fell short of matching the record they set with an 11-0 win over Argentina in 2007." - BBC

May 13, 2015 - Nadine Angerer to retire after World Cup
"Goalkeeper Nadine Angerer will end international career after the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, with the 36-year-old – currently playing for Portland Thorns in the United States – set to hang up her boots completely in the autumn. 'My decision is final, which is why I decided to announce it before the World Cup, so everyone knows what is going on,' said the 138-times capped Angerer, Germany's captain since 2011 and winner of five UEFA Women's European Championships and two World Cups. '"This will not have any impact on my – or the team's – performance at the World Cup; if anything, it will be positive'." - UEFA

April 8, 2015 - Sasic, Laudehr, Leupolz & Marozsan score in 4-0 win over Brazil
Celia Sasic 26' (penalty), Simone Laudehr 35', Melanie Leupolz 60', Dzenifer Marozsan 86'
"After the historic 7-1 thrashing Germany's men's team posted over Brazil in last year's FIFA World Cup™ semi-finals, the German women matched their male counterparts by again putting the south Americans to the sword. Striker Celia Sasic converted an early penalty, midfielders Simone Laudehr, Melanie Leupolz and Dzenifer Marozsan all netted in the rout in Fuerth, two months before the Women's World Cup starts in Canada. 'I am already pretty much in love with my team. What we planned, they perfectly implemented,' said Neid, who coached Germany to the China PR 2007 title and will step down in 2016." - FIFA

April 1, 2015 - roster updates
"The German Football Federation have confirmed that VfL Wolfsburg’s Lena Goeßling and FC Bayern München’s Leonie Maier, are out of the Germany squad for the upcoming friendly match against Brazil in Fürth (8th April) due to injuries. Lena Goeßling has damaged a nerve in her back, whilst Leonie Maier has torn a muscle fibre. Germany women’s national team head coach, Silvia Neid has called up Anna Blässe of VfL Wolfsburg as a replacement." - Womens Soccer United  

March 9, 2015 - Anja Mittag & Alexandra Popp score in win over Sweden
"Germany's women's national soccer team have beaten Sweden 2-1 in the playoff for third at this year's Algarve Cup in Portugal. The 12 team tournament is considered one of the major warm-up events ahead of this year's Women's World Cup. The German side went into the lead early in the game, after a successful strike in the third minute from Anja Mittag. In the second half, Alexandra Popp then doubled Germany's lead with a goal in the 52nd minute. Sweden's Sofia Jakobsson pegged one back in the 64th minute of play, but it wasn't enough for the 2009 Algarve champs. Despite a predictably frenetic finish, the 2007 World Champions were able to hold their lead until the full-time whistle." - DW

March 9, 2015 - Popp, Sasic & Marozsan score in win over Brazil
"The German women’s national team have won the important final group match of the Algarve Cup 3-1 against Brazil. Alexandra Popp (39) Celia Sasic (49) and Dzsenifer Marozsan (56) scored the goals for Germany, while Bruna Benites (47) scored the initial equaliser for Brazil. With six points, Germany sits level with Sweden, narrowly missing out on top spot." - DFB

March 6, 2015 - Anja Mittag & Alexandra Popp score in 2-0 win over China
"Gegen China gewann das Team von Bundestrainerin Silvia Neid das zweite Spiel des Algarve-Cups mit 2:0 (1:0) und wahrte damit die Chance auf die erfolgreiche Titelverteidigung. Anja Mittag (41.) und Alexandra Popp (76.) erzielten die Tore. Getrübt wurde die Stimmung aber vom möglichen WM-Aus der langzeitverletzten Weltfußballerin Nadine Keßler - die 26-Jährige muss sich erneut einer Knie-OP unterziehen. "Ein Comeback in der Saison 2014/2015 ist ausgeschlossen", schrieb Keßlers Klubs VfL Wolfsburg kurz vor dem Anpfiff in Vila Real de Santo Antonio. Die Zeit bis zur Endrunde in Kanada (6. Juni bis 5. Juli) wird extrem knapp. Zudem muss die Bundestrainerin auf Luisa Wensing verzichten. Die Abwehrspielerin zog sich einen Wadenbeinbruch zu und fällt rund drei Monate aus." - DW
