Fort Lauderdale (DPA) – National striker Linda Dallman is expecting a major educational impact from the United States’ two international matches against the world soccer champions.
“I think such a trip is worthwhile because you can’t play against the USA every day and that is of course the level we have to measure – also for the World Cup,” said the 28-year-old. From FC Bayern Munich in Fort Lauderdale.
The European vice-champion will meet the US team on November 11 (1:05am CET/ZDF live) in Fort Lauderdale/Florida and on November 13 (11:08pm CET/ARD live) in Harrison/NEW jersey. National team coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg hopes to gain important insights into preparations for the World Cup from July 20 to August 20 in Australia and New Zealand. Ittihad women will play against Morocco, Colombia and South Korea in the preliminary round.
“The US dominates the world elite in women’s football and it’s a competition where they know they are very physically strong, and they are an experienced team,” Dallman added. Of the 35 international matches against the Americans, Germany have won four and drawn only seven times.
