The German women footballers have won a test match in London 2: 1 against England. Alexandra Popp (9th minute) and Klara Bühl (90th) scored the goals for the team of national coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg. Ellen White scored the equalizer (44 ').
In advance, the game with 90,000 tickets sold was considered sold out, but this possible European record was missed. Nevertheless, the 77,768 spectators at Wembley Stadium meant a record, because never before had more visitors seen a home game of the Lionesses.
The German team began with an intense and aggressive appearance in the game, so that the DFB-Elf already went in the 9th minute in the lead. Kathrin Hendrich flanked halfway to the center, where captain Popp headed into the right corner.
After half an hour, the English women found more and more in the game, but the first chance of the equalizer missed Nikita Parris from the penalty spot, because DFB goalkeeper Merle Frohms still rescued with the left foot tip. Previously, Frohms White had brought down (36.). A little later, White looked like a cross. She was just offside, the hit should not have counted (44.).
Only in the 90th minute caused Buhl for the 2-1 winner. For the 18-year-old, it was the seventh goal in the tenth international match.
